Cultural Narrative: 

The document shows the injustice felt by Chappaquiddick Wampanoag’s in how land was divided to non-Wampanoag’s. It specifically references those who were non-native but married to a Chappaquiddick Wampanoag and received land, but were not supporting and giving back to the community. Also in regards to those non-native but intermarried that would not help the poor in the tribe and pay communal debts.
