The Sakonnet people are Native Americans in the United States, related to the Wampanoag people who spoke a dialect of the Massachusett language. The tribal name was applied to Rhode Island's Sakonnet River, Sakonnet Harbor, and other geographic features.
The spelling "Sakonnet" has become accepted because of long use on maps, but the name is sometimes written as 'Sekonnet', 'Seaconnet', 'Sakonnet', 'Saconnet', 'Sakonett', or 'Segonet'.
