Our Present

Our programs strive to blend Nipmuc traditions and self-reliance into our modern lives to become our best selves – reclaiming not only our Culture and People but our Spiritual and Physical Well-being.

We accomplish this by-

Using traditional methods to plant crops on the Hassanamesit Reservation to help feed the community.

Learning about and creating medicine with local plants.

Supporting tribal entrepreneurs by converting the Reservation cook shack into a commercial kitchen.

Assessing our community’s strengths and needs.

The NIDC also aids the Hassanamisco Indian Museum in fulfilling their mission to provide traditional education to tribal members by providing financial support.
