The Massachusett were also known as the 'Moswetuset,' which derives from the same roots as 'Massachusett' but the first element is found only in a few compounds with the meaning of 'to pierce' and refers to an 'arrow-shaped hill' and refers to Moswetuset Hummock in what is now Quincy, Massachusetts, said to be ceremonial meeting ground between sachems.
