The ACLU-CT is committed to defending the rights of Native Americans to be free from discrimination and governmental abuse of power. Native Americans have suffered discrimination and injustice at the hands of the government since this country’s founding, yet contemporary discussions of civil rights all too often overlook the rights of Native Americans. To even begin to reckon with the vast harm that this state has wrought on Native Americans and tribes like the Mohegans, the Pequots, and the Quinnipiacs, the government must formally recognize that the land that Connecticut occupies all was originally indigenous land.
