Our tribal lands will continue to remain in trust for generations to come. Tribal citizens who are with us today and our ancestors who have carried the fight for our homeland forward generation after generation. Today, we can celebrate this historic decision.
Our Tribe will follow up with additional details tomorrow, but we wanted to take a few moments this evening to share the news as soon as I received it. Below is a copy of the opinion issued by the court. Have a wonderful Halloween, and know Mashpee Will Shine Tonight.
