Nipmuc Indian Association of Connecticut is a Native American Organization,
registered as non-profit association.
"The Nipmuc Indian Association of Connecticut is dedicated to our Nipmuc ancestors, to our future seven generations, and to all who have helped our People.
Nipmuc Indians are the original people of central New England, and are among the "Eastern Woodlands" or Algonquian Indians of the Eastern United States. Before the arrival of European settlers in the 1600s, the Nipmuc (or "Fresh Water People") lived in numerous band encampments, or ‘villages’, near bodies of fresh water in a territory (called ‘Nipnet’) which extended from the present day Vermont and New Hampshire borders, through Worcester County in Massachusetts, into northern Rhode Island, and into northeastern Connecticut as far south as Plainfield."
