Mashpee is the Land of the Wampanoags. Each year, on the 4th of July weekend, they hold a Pow Wow on the grounds of the Tribal Council. The Medicine Man lights the ceremonial fire, and the dancing and singing begin in celebration of their culture. Some of the rituals are sacred to the people as they give thanks to their Creator and to Mother Earth as well as paying homage to their ancestors and tribal leaders. Many of their native costumes have elaborate, colorful beadwork. The dancing is quite exciting to watch.-Cape Cod
