Native American ancestry
The Nauset Indians were a small Algonquian tribe of Massachusetts, allies of the
Wampanoag and speakers
of a dialect of the Wampanoag (or Massachusett) language.
They have also been known as the Cape Cod Indians or the Cape Indians.
The Nausets do not exist as a distinct tribe today. After colonization they merged together with
their neighbors the Wampanoag. Most Nauset descendants belong to one of
the two Wampanoag tribes today, while others live in nearby communities in Massachusetts.
