The native American tribe living in Salem when the colonists arrived was called "Naumkeag".

They were part of the Pawtucket nation. There were as many as six other Indian Nations in New England.

By the time Conant came with his settlers, they number of Indians was greatly reduced. The new settlers were able

to use these cleared lands for their own use.
