In response to the Trump administration revoking reservation status to Massachusetts’ MASHPEE WAMPANOAG tribe, I opted to make this my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art Challenge (https://sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com/) this week. In 2015, President Barack Obama bestowed special land designations to the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. In taking this action, Trump is undoing yet another piece of Obama’s humane legacy…a further slap in the face for our country’s First People and to former President, Barack Obama!
I’m posting this poem of peace and unity, written by my friend and international Iroquois spokeswoman, Deer Clan Mother, Audrey Shenandoah. RIP, dear friend. You are missed and loved.
Trump has systematically tried to undo every good thing Obama did, out of sheer spite. He is such an evil man!
it is a beautiful poem and a gorgeous piece of art. i am so sorry for this loss for the mashpee wamponoag people and i hope justice will be done for the tribe..
Lovely artwork. But that’s the problem with Executive (US President) Orders: they can be undone by any President who follows. It’s Congress’ job to pass Laws, not the President’s. Maybe President Biden will restore this.
