Indigenous People

On March 14, 2022, the Chelmsford Select Board signed a Land Acknowledgement Proclamation which was drafted by Maria Palacio and Laura Judge of the Chelmsford Public Library in coordination with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and Select Board member, Pat Wojtas. This important first step seeks to recognize the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this land and honor the Indigenous peoples that are still connected to this land now known as Chelmsford.
