Mashpee Land Sovereignty Walk & Rally on October 6
The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s citizens are currently suffering a massive loss of resources and services due to the uncertainty of the trust status of the Reservation. Millions of dollars of funding are being lost or delayed for our clean water program, our children’s education through our Mukayuhsak Weekuw immersion pre-school and kindergarten and critical community service programs. It’s also a direct threat to our emergency services, housing and substance abuse program that’s desperately needed to combat the opioid epidemic. These are just a few of the ways this negative ruling is impacting our community and our children. Please consider ways that you can help correct this injustice.
Support our efforts to bring awareness to our Land Sovereignty and its critical importance to the Mashpee Wampanoag on Saturday, October 6 at 10:00 a.m. starting at Collins Lot/Community Park.
Following the walk, the rally will include a list of internationally known Indigenous Rights speakers who wish to address the supporters at the Tribe’s Powwow Grounds.
We encourage families and friends to attend this potluck gathering on the powwow grounds during the Rally!
