We, the Nehantic Nation,

As descendants of a Tribe that has existed in this place from prehistoric times
to the present, recognize our ancestral connection to the lands of our people.

As descendants of the first Nehantic people, we reaffirm our dedication to promote our tribe’s social, cultural, educational, economic and political progress.


About us

We are dedicated to the conservation and continuation of our tribal culture and history. We continue to care for the land upon which we have lived, to welcome Nehantics back to our homelands, and to promote the social and cultural well-being of Nehantic descendants.
