Trusty, alias Trusty Steed, was a member of Mohegan Sachem Uncas' council and family confidant.  Through his will in 1675, Uncas' son, Attawanhood (Joshua) requested Trusty to assist in the upbringing of his children and teach them English.  For doing so, Joshua further requested that Trusty not be required to service during the rest of King Philip's War, considering that important role.  Three years later, Uncas criticized Trusty for reporting to Connecticut authorities that the Mohegan sachem had a great design against the English. Things may have been patched up between the two men, for only a few days later, Trusty was a witness on a friendship agreement between Uncas and Owaneco on the one part and the English on the other.
