Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Massachusett

The Massachusett are a tribe of Native Americans who originally lived in areas surrounding Massachusetts Bay in what is now the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

As one of the first groups of indigenous American peoples to encounter English colonists, the Massachusett has a rapid decline in population in the 17th and 18th centuries due to infectious diseases. Descendants continue to inhabit the Greater Boston area to this day.
