"We Will Take Action to Prevent the Loss of Our Land"

Donald J Trump Administration is trying to steal reservation from Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe.

Land Grab in the wake of disease. This is the History of the United States, from the days of the Massachusetts Bay Colony to the reign of Donald J Trump.

Shame.

Message from the Chairman: We Will Take Action to Prevent the Loss of Our Land
At 4:00 pm today -- on the very day that the United States has reached a record 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and our Tribe is desperately struggling with responding to this devastating pandemic -- the Bureau of Indian Affairs informed me that the Secretary of the Interior has ordered that our reservation be disestablished and that our land be taken out of trust. Not since the termination era of the mid-twentieth century has a Secretary taken action to disestablish a reservation.

Today's action was cruel and it was unnecessary. The Secretary is under no court order to take our land out of trust. He is fully aware that litigation to uphold our status as a tribe eligible for the benefits of the Indian Reorganization Act is ongoing.
