quicko: bennelong

The Australian Squanto. Bennelong is one of the most famous Aboriginal Australians. He lived from roughly 1764 to 1813 and helped the governor of the settlement. He learned English and went for a visit to England, though returned unable to be accepted fully either among his own people or the settlers. The end of his story isn't particularly pleasant, but his name lives on.
