Race Proceeds

Chappaquiddick Tribe of the Wampanoag Nation’s Cultural, Historical, and Educational Program

This year, net proceeds from the Chappy Point to Point, a Project of the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, will go to The Chappaquiddick Tribe of the Wampanoag Nation’s Cultural, Historical, and Educational Program.  As noted by the Tribe:

"The 12,000 year history of the Chappaquiddick Wampanoag is rich and an important component to the Island’s story. As a tribal community we honor Moshup the creator of Noepe (Martha’s Vineyard) and Ohke, Mother Earth, and understand the importance of following the Original Instructions from The Great Spirit to be the caretakers of the land. We continue to gather, fish, hunt, shellfish, protect traditional cultural properties and hold ceremony on Chappaquiddick. Our Ancestors, who are buried and rest on Chappaquiddick passed down cultural knowledge, and shared stories that we carry and must be documented and shared.”

The funds raised will be used for construction of a traditional dwelling called a wetu to be located near the swimming beach at Wasque.  The wetu project will include the development of information on the Chappaquiddick Tribe of the Wampanoag Nation and the island ecosystem to be displayed both near the structure and at the Chappy Community Center.  A supplemental educational program involving annual talks will also be created.  Construction of the wetu will take place in the Spring of 2022.  Read more about the Tribe at:  https://chappaquiddickwampanoag.org/
