Cape Cod is home to the town of Mashpee, MA. Mashpee was at one time a reservation for the Wampanoag tribe but was incorporated as a town in 1870 by the State of Massachusetts. Their history is fascinating and infuriating. The tribe hosts an annual pow-wow and the Wampanoag drum circle Eastern Suns travels to perform for dancers at other pow-wows, including this one at Brown University.
Our next stop is in Lawrence, MA to poke around where Leonard Bernstein was born and raised. His father owned a bookstore and seems to have discouraged young Leonard's interest in music as a profession, at least for a while. Aren't you glad he changed his mind?
We're stopping here for now because Boston's gonna be big. Have some lunch, we'll be back on the road in no time.
