Statement on U.S. House of Representatives Passing Amendment Protecting the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and its Reservation Land

Published on Jul 29, 2020

“The inclusion of this amendment to protect the reservation land of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is a welcome development, and an important recognition of tribal sovereignty by the U.S. House of Representatives. We urge the U.S. Senate to include the same provisions in its appropriations bills, ensuring that the federal government respects this tribal nation’s rights, and that we avoid long, costly litigation that could threaten its very existence.”

- NCAI President Fawn Sharp
