Middleboro selectmen to decide how to spend tribe’s money
A rival tribe is once again disputing the Mashpee Wampanoag’s ties to Middleboro, but local selectmen say it’s not their problem. Selectmen have received a letter from the Pokanoket tribe, claiming the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe have no historical ties to Middleboro lands. “The Mashpee belong on the Cape,” said Sagamore William O. Guy, president of the Council of Pokanoket Tribe.
