The Huntington acknowledges that our physical spaces stand on the occupied homeland of the Massachusett people. We’d like to begin by acknowledging the Massachusett Tribe from whom the Colony, Province and Commonwealth of Massachusetts have taken their name. We’d like to pay respect to the ancestral bloodline of the Massachusett Tribe and their descendants who still inhabit the land to this day. We honor and respect the many native peoples who are connected to this land, past, present and future, including the Nipmuc and Wampanoag peoples.
This land acknowledgement was created by staff of The Huntington with input from the council of The Massachusett Tribe at Ponkapoag. To learn more about the tribe or to donate in support of their current programs, visit their website www.massachusetttribe.org
