Wampanoag PD

Director of the Native Land Conservancy and Mashpee Wampanoag tribal member Ramona Peters speaks to Falmouth and Mashpee teachers about the taking of Wampanoag lands and the tribe’s fight to reclaim them.

Falmouth and Mashpee educators gathered inside the Mashpee Middle-High School library on May 15 to learn about the past and present of Mashpee Wampanoag land. After 12,000 years inhabiting what is now known as Massachusetts, the Mashpee Wampanoag were finally recognized by the federal government in 2007. Then came a years-long legal battle for their land, which culminated earlier this year.
