Chairman's Column


Greetings Tribal Family,

Are you ready to powwow on our ancestral homeland? It’s going to be a beautiful homecoming. It’s been several years since we have hosted our annual powwow on tribal land and bringing it back now just feels right. Just thinking about it fills me with pride knowing that we are on the right path and that our ancestors are looking down on us today in approval.

Powwow To Be Held On Federally Recognized Land


The 97th Annual Mashpee Wampanoag Powwow will be returning home to tribal lands on Great Neck Road South next weekend after several years at Cape Cod Fairgrounds.

The tribe’s homeland brings a special meaning to the event, and the Mashpee Wampanoag Powwow Committee appropriately titled this year’s theme “A Traditional Homecoming.”

Hosting the event on tribal lands allows tribal members to have a better connection to their ancestors, an important aspect to a powwow.
