The New England Native American Institute is a tax-exempt non-profit Massachusetts corporation functioning as an Indian-controlled center, located in Worcester Massachusetts.

The Institute collaborates with Native American researchers, representatives of regional Indian nations, non-Indian scholars and others. Its work is to further a scholarly study and appreciation of New England's rich and unique Native American history and culture. The Institute has been active in many areas including:

  • Preserving a still growing collection of Indian artifacts, documents, photographs and other objects for an eventual Native American museum in the central Massachusetts area.
  • Initiating an Indian oral history archive of video tapes of elders and tribal activities.
  • Conducting Native American community-based adult educational cycles exploring facets of Indian life ways and native spirituality.
  • Identifying regional Native American historical and archeological sites for documentation preservation and protection.
  • Conducting workshops, conferences, and providing speakers
  • Selling and buying culturally appropriate items for educational and fund raising purposes.
  • Publishing informational pamphlets about history and culture of local Native people, and tracing one's Native roots.
