Chairman's Column


Greetings Tribal Family,

I have a couple of brief updates that all relate to our land that I want to provide you. We have the pending decision from the Department of Interior that I want to talk about, our Wampanoag Village Housing development and our 97th Annual Powwow, which is returning to Tribal Lands this year. Our land is and continues to be our connection to our past, present and future.


Mashpee Selectmen Sign Public Service Agreement With Tribe

The Mashpee Board of Selectmen on Monday, February 12, agreed to re-sign a memorandum of understanding with the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council agreeing to extend emergency services on tribal sovereign land for the remainder of the year.

The signature of the agreement arrives after the two Mashpee governments failed to meet over a two-month period as had originally been proposed.

The agreement sets out a set of protocols for local and state police, fire and medical personnel to respond on tribal land while the tribe develops its own emergency infrastructure and personnel. The town has signed yearly, temporary agreements since the tribe received a reservation proclamation from the federal government.
