Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
It’s Indigenous Peoples’ Day and we thought it would be fitting to send a newsletter that highlights some of the stories we’ve done over the past year that feature members of the Vineyard’s Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah). If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.
NOTE: This newsletter might be cut short by your email program. View it in full here.

Today's Minute is sponsored by: Island Housing Trust

Steps back
In September, we wrote about the return of the powwow for the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) after a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The tribe was forced to cancel its annual celebration, but this year tribes from around the region joined the Aquinnah Wampanoag for drumming, dancing, and a taste of the tribe’s culture. Reporter Eunki Seonwoo wrote this story.
Who we are
The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) was featured in an exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian. The exhibit featured videos from members of the Aquinnah Wampanoag talking about the tribe’s history, the importance of wampum, and traditional storytelling. Reporter Lucas Thors wrote this story.

Leadership role
Cheryl Andrews-Maltais isn’t just the chair of the Aquinnah Wampanoag’s tribal council, she is also a national leader. As such, she was invited to two events that included President Joe Biden — an event in Boston to celebrate the renovations at Logan Airport and then the introduction of his inflation reduction law. Editor George Brennan had that story. Meanwhile, Andrews-Maltais was also invited to greet Vice President Kamala Harris when she visited Boston and made a brief stop on the Island. Here is that story.
