The Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe is requesting donations to enable them to acquire 38 acres of their ancestral land on the shores of Triangle Pond, located between Great Herring Pond and Long Pond in Plymouth. This land stewardship project will involve traditional ecological practices and “sacred ceremonies, food sovereignty, community empowerment, educational opportunities, and cultural reconnection.”

It will be a “healing model [of] land conservation to be passed down to future generations” and will have “numerous benefits for the…community in the face of climate change, such as soil enrichment, water quality protection, enhancement of biodiversity, and the preservation of local open space.” The Tribe’s sole source of income comes from grants, gifts, and donations to its 501(c)3 non-profit organization of the same name. “With the generous support of people like you, that care so deeply about the work we do, our organization can continue to pursue our mission and share our rich history.
