The Massachusetts Democrat vowed to move forward with legislation after the Bureau of Indian Affairs admitted defeat Friday in its two-year search for a legal avenue to take 320 acres into trust on behalf of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

The Interior Department agreed in 2015 to hold land in trust for the tribe, a condition for building the tribal casino, but a year later U.S. District Court Judge William G. Young blocked the decision, ruling that the tribe was recognized about 73 years too late to qualify under the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act.

“The decision by the Trump administration to move forward with denying the Mashpee Wampanoag a right to their ancestral homeland and to keep their reservation is an injustice,” Ms. Warren and Sen. Edward J. Markey, both Massachusetts Democrats, said in a statement....

Fascinating, isn’t it, that a judge nixed this in 2016 — before President Trump was POTUS.

Your version of that old joke was apparently a lot nicer than the one that went around our school in the early sixties. The tribe had a different name. A lot like WTF!?

Squaw SpeakingBull, could you please stop these Indians from casinos? Jeff Benedict knew some of those Indians are not Native Americans. He wrote Without Reservations.

#13. Yes, Prince Fauxchohantas lackum wampum from some possibly illegal Indian skullduggery. I say that Congress should investigate her ties to the tribe and find out how much they have contributed to her political campaigns.

And I don’t think they pay her in beaver pelts.

The Wamps.

There hasn’t been a living Wamp in that area for 100 years. Unless you count the graduates of Braintree high school.
