Land is Sacred: Stand With the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe 51

Campaign created by
Wopanaak Language Reclamation Project
The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, the very tribe that welcomed the Pilgrims in the 1600s, is at risk of losing what is left of their homelands due to a determination made by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Why is this important?

The Mashpee Wampanoag, the People of the First Light, have occupied the same region for over 12,000 years and have faced diminishment of their homelands since colonization. The latest decision is a blow to Tribal sovereignty and undermines the future and sustainability of the tribal nation. The Tribe is asking Congress to protect its reservation lands and has put forth the “Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Reservation Reaffirmation Act (HR.312).” We are asking for signatures in support of this legislation.
