Wampanoag Tribe Sets Eyes on a Language Immersion Charter School

As summer comes to an end, students around the Cape are getting ready to head back to school. A group called the Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project hopes that two years from now there will be a new school in Mashpee for children to attend: a language immersion school in which the majority of classes are taught in Wampanoag.
