Mashpee Wampanoag Struggle for Land and Federal Recognition 1977-2007

For this particular lesson, I will require students to examine the 1970’s and the “me” generation a bit deeper. Students will examine the Mashpee case in conjunction with other reform movements of the 1970’s. While examining environmental reform, feminism, and the Mexican American experience, I intend to have students learn about the Mashpee case. It is a major goal to make this topic cohesive with the others. I do not want this lesson or more importantly Native Americans, to seem like an afterthought, as this group is too often thought of.
