    Opechancanough was the younger brother of Paramount Chief Powhatan. They may or may not have had the same Mother. Paramount Chief Powhatan was Pocahantas' father. Velasco may have been an Indian taken to Cuba or Spain by Spanish Priests, taught Spanish language, culture and religion and then used as an interpreter. He may have had a relationship with Pocahantas (Not Nicketti) before she married John Rolfe. See "Pocahanta's People" by Helen C. Rountree.

    Could Opechancanough be Don Luis de Valasco? If so I think his father must have been a Spanish soldier.
