The Weantinock were a Native American tribe that existed during and prior to colonial times in western Connecticut, United States. They were a sub-group of the Paugussett Nation and lived in what is present day New Milford. They were a farming and fishing culture, cultivating corn, squash, beans and tobacco and fishing in freshwater and possibly traveling to the coast to fish in summer months.

They eventually amalgamated with the Potatuck and other indigenous people to form Schaghticokes in western Connecticut.
