Point of Interest
The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is part of an inter-tribal effort called the Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project, which is devoted to preserving one of the first languages spoken by the Wampanoag Native Americans. The Wampanoag language ceased to be spoken around the mid-19th century, and there were no fluent speakers of the language for six generations. The project aims to return fluency to the Wampanoag Nation as a principal means of expression. Its founder, Jessie “little doe” Baird, was awarded a prestigious MacArthur foundation genius grant in 2010. wlrp.org
