Mashpee Wampanoag mother and son file land claim

Two members of the recently recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts filed a land claim in federal court on Wednesday.

Amelia Bingham and her son, Steven, are claiming all town- and state-owned land in Mashpee, the tribe's historical base. Land in private ownership is not being targeted.

"If a wrong's been done, it has to be corrected," Steven Bingham said, The Cape Cod Times reported.
