Queen Alliquippa was a chief of the Mingo Seneca Indians. She commanded respect not only from the Indian families under her rule, but from the white explorers and traders who were beginning to come into the region. Her loyalty was always with the British rather than the French. George Washington wrote of his meeting with her in 1753 at the confluence of the Youghiogheny and the Monongahela rivers, near present-day McKeesport.

In 1910, the ladies who wanted to become part of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution chose a name for our chapter that reflected not only their love of history,
but the strength of the woman, Queen Alliquippa.
