Where’s the tribe? The tribal employees turned out for Cedric and Cheryl’s press conference and party Saturday, but the Tribe was absent. Where were the jubilant tribal members ? Not much of a crowd. Guess the Mashpee weren’t feeling it. There was such low turn out Harold Tobey was in one picture…he used to call us Mud Hens. Guess they ran out of people to invite.
Anyway, Ramona Peters was unrecognizable standing there at the microphone
talking about our ( undocumented ) history in Taunton(Ahem)…definitely a symbol of the tribe today.
The Tribe of 6 years ago was anywhere but there…no proud families together, laughing and talking….just the employees. The Cape Cod Times captured the drummers and about 30 -40 people and kids…lotta food to take home. Not much to celebrate, since nothings going to change.
The Elders and the Mashpee were celebrating Aunt Dart’s ( Ellen Hendricks) 90th
birthday, at the Rod and Gun Club…telling stories and reminiscing about our golden days when we were proud people. 90 years young, a symbol of who we were.
