    DESCENDANT OF THE ANCIENT ANCESTORS OF THE WAMPANOAGS WHO HAVE LIVED AT AQUINNAH (GAY HEAD) AND THE ISLAND OF NOEPE (MARTHA'S VINEYARD) FOR 10,000 YEARS

    SACHEM (CHIEF) OF THE WAMPANOAGS AT AQUINNAH (GAY HEAD, MARTHA'S VINEYARD)

    "Wampanoag" means "People of the First Light."

    Today, the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) is governed by a Tribal Council and has over 900 members. They continue to celebrate the rich heritage of their people.

    "To be Wampanoag
    is inside you. It's
    really something that
    you can be proud of."
    --a tribal member

    EASTERN TRIBES AT THE TIME OF THE MAYFLOWER
    "When the pilgrims landed there were three Federations (Confederations) on the east coast from Maine to Florida. The Iroquois, Algonquain, and Muskogee. Under the Iroquois there were 5 nations; Cayouga, Onandoga, Mohawk, and a couple of others. Later the Tuscurorah joined them and they are now the League of 6 nations. Our Constitution was derived in part from their constitution. The founding fathers sent 2 representatives to them to study their constitution, (The Great Law, or The Great Brotherhood), and Benjamin Framklin was the scribe. In thanks, the US sent them a gift of thanks. The Muskogee were the tribes to the south including Creek, Seminole, Caribe, and others. The Wampanoag had 5 nations; Wampanoag, Pequot/Mohegan, Massachusetts, Nauset, and Narragansett. The Narragansett was considered Wampanoag however, I've proven that they did not come from the same common ancestor as some of the other nations did, but were descended from "refugee slaves" to quote William Bradford." --Mary Hilliard, expert on Native American genealogical research

    USE OF THE WORD "SACHEM"
    "Chief" was used by western tribes. "Sachem" was used by east coast tribes. The pilgrims invented the term "Chief Sachem" to describe the head Sachem over all the lesser Sachems.
