MWT Education Department
It all starts here... Language and learning
Our mission in the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Education Department is to provide and support programs that nurture the positive social and academic development of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal members. For the sustainability of our community we seek to promote and cultivate leadership skills in our youth while, deepening their understanding of tribal history, culture, the natural environment we are entrusted to.
We strive to increase the number of Mashpee Wampanoag’s who enroll, matriculate in, and successfully complete college and graduate school programs. We maintain our mission by working with schools, college colleges and other educational cultural and social institutions to meet our common objectives by exploring avenues and approaches to provide holistic, creative community-based educational programs.
