Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe

Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe

We are the Plymouth tribe of Indians, named present day as the Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe also identified in historical documents as Comassakumkanit, The Herring Pond Indians, The Pondville Indians, and The Praying Indians among others. Our sacred places include our meetinghouse and our cemeteries which all date back to the 18th century. To us, these are the places of our ancestors and we are obligated to protect, and to preserve them.
