Synopsis: This is a reconstruction of the trial where the Mashpee Indians claimed ownership of the area of Cape Cod that they have occupied for 350 years. Their claim was rejected as they were judged not to be a true tribe, having not survived as an ethnic identity.
From Publishers Weekly:
In 1977, the Mashpee Indians, who had lived in the same area of Cape Cod for 350 years, sued in federal court to recover land that had been taken from them in contravention of a 1790 federal statute. The town of Mashpee and its landowners challenged the Indians' status as a tribe, and the case hinged on this issue. Anthropologist Campisi served as expert witness for the Mashpees in a losing cause. Here he gives an insider's account of the proceedings, noting that what is a fact in anthropology is not necessarily an admissible fact in law. He argues that judge and jury alike were confused, if not prejudiced. Campisi offers a detailed history of the Mashpees from first contact with Europeans to the present, making a strong case for tribal status. The book will appeal to readers interested in local history, law and/or Native American issues. Illustrations.
