We are not a tribe. We are a grassroots movement of community members of diverse cultural backgrounds, working to re-frame New Hampshire’s heritage through a decolonial lens. We do not speak on behalf of Indigenous peoples; we stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples. Read more about our co-conspirators on our About page.
INHCC began as a small collaboration in 2016 between the Cowasuck Band of the Abenaki-Pennacook Tribal Leaders, UNH faculty, and undergraduate students (hence the logo, Bezoak, which means “wildcats” in Abenaki). We have grown since that time and now our co-conspirators include people with a wide range of backgrounds and professional and personal lives.
