Eastern Native Tribes Object to Cape Wind
03 Sep 2009
The Aquinnah and Mashpee Wampanoag Tribes have long stated the project would desecrate their religious freedoms as a sovereign nation spiritually connected to Nantucket Sound.
In support of the Aquinnah and Mashpee Wampanoag Tribes, the United South and Eastern Tribes (USET), a coalition of 25 federally-recognized Tribes, has objected to the proposed Cape Wind location [in
Massachusetts] due to unavoidable cultural, religious, and archaeological impacts. In a February 12, 2009, resolution, USET called upon the Department of Interior (DOI) to halt any further action on Cape Wind stating that the project “will forever change the physical
integrity of the Sacred Site.” The Aquinnah and Mashpee Wampanoag Tribes have long stated the project would desecrate their religious freedoms as a sovereign nation spiritually connected to Nantucket Sound.

The Alliance to Save Nantucket Sound and a growing chorus of stakeholders – including the Wampanoag Tribes, Massachusetts Historical Commission, and local towns– have called for MMS to consider a deepwater alternative location for the Cape Wind project, which would protect public safety, preserve Tribal interests, and enable [the] nation to pursue responsible, affordable offshore renewable energy.
