our history

We are members of the Wampanoag Nation. Our homelands range from the Plymouth (Plimoth Colony) areas to the upper parts of Cape Cod (Bourne, Sandwich and Plymouth County). We have been here for thousands of years. We have fished these waters, cultivated these lands and raised our children here. We have been known over the years by many names…Patuxet, Herring Pond/Pondville, Manomet, Comassakumkanit and The Praying Indians on old English maps. But we are presently known today as the Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe. We are the Plymouth tribe of Indians!

De-Colonizing The Mindset All Indigenous Peoples have inherent rights—rights that exist regardless of stateor federal definitions. Unfortunately, America has consistently ignored sometribes while recognizing others. For centuries, the United States legal system hastreated Native Americans as inferior beings to those of European descent, andtherefore deserving of lesser rights.
