Biden, Harris and Congress: 'Restore the Mashpee Wampanoag reservation to federal status'

 

January 26, 2021



As the United States of America is in the midst of cleaning up a mess that the now-former President instigated, everyone is trying to regain their balance over the terrible insurrection at the Capitol building on January 6th.

Often lost in the shuffle of change are the needs, concerns and interests of this nation's Indigenous people. Native Americans are hoping that this time is finally our time. Tribes are currently battling this pandemic at the same time as we try to reclaim and hold onto our homelands and sovereign rights.

The Narragansett Tribe of Rhode Island, like many other tribes, are hoping that the Biden administration and the 117th Congress will be our turn to see our sovereignty upheld and our land permitted to follow land-into-trust. Elders have been waiting since they were young adults and the younger generations look forward to having more of a level playing field in order to be more self-sufficient.
