Son of Mashpee

Wampanoags are the Native Americans whose first encounter with the Pilgrims set the course of the history of New England, yet Wampanoags' stories are not told, Wampanoags' voices are not heard. The new book Son of Mashpee was created in an attempt to change that. It is a voice direct from the Mashpee Wampanoag community.

Part biography, part history, Son of Mashpee is a portrait of Chief Flying Eagle, Earl Mills, Sr., and his family with a strong emphasis on the heritage and legacy of the Wampanoags. The story of the Wampanoag tribe and stories of the Mills family are parallel in time and go back to the 18th century.

The book which is richly illustrated with old photographs, maps and drawings presents Mashpee of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, as it once was and is today. It addresses also a variety of topics as the annual pow wows and the dramatic changes in the Wampanoag community after the 1976 lawsuit when the Mashpee Wampanoags tried to regain ownership of their land.

Cape Cod Tinies recommends Son of Mashpee as a "highly readable, often humorous and thoroughly entertaining book that should be read by anyone who doesn't have an understanding of the tribe's importance to Mashpee and Cape Cod."

Joan Avant Tavares, Owamasqua, Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Historian and long-term Director of Indian Education, Mashpee Public Schools, states: '...This book becomes an important,piece of contemporary literature filling the great void in the source of information concerning Mashpee Wampanoag heritage. Individual voices from the Native American community are finally heard. For those who are interested in learning about our heritage and our culture, this book has made a vital contribution..."
