Stand with Mashpee on Indigenous Peoples Day



Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe

This Indigenous Peoples Day we ask you to #StandWithMashpee and help us Protect the Mashpee Reservation and pass HR 5244 THE MASHPEE WAMPANOAG TRIBE RESERVATION REAFFIRMATION ACT. Congress has the ability to stop this now, and with our voices we can join together to stop this injustice. It is cruicial that you take action NOW and call or write to the Natrual Resource Committe and Senate Indian Affairs Committee.
