Land Acknowledgement

      As one step toward carrying out our equity and anti-racism initiative, we acknowledge that we are meeting on the ancestral homeland of the Massachusett people, who lived here for thousands of years before European colonists began arriving about 1630.

      In the 1600s, the Massachusett were led by the Saunkswa of Missitekw (called the Squaw Sachem by the colonists), who led her people through epidemics, wars, and displacement. We acknowledge that Winchester exists within a region where lands were taken under unjust and violent circumstances, causing a forced relocation that continues to have harmful effects on native communities. 

      As part of the town government of Winchester, we recognize our responsibility, now, to be good stewards of this land.  And we acknowledge that Massachusett, Wampanoag, and other Indigenous people from across the country currently live in Winchester and throughout the state and contribute to our community in myriad ways.
