Reel Wamps - How Cedric Cromwell became an Indian

Thanks to Reel Wamps  at for this insider's look at Cedric Cromwell's history as a recent (2006) member of the Mashpee Wampanoag and his rise to power from being a non-Indian to a person of ancient Indian descent (POAID) which others have called "nosebleed" Indian (if he got a nosebleed he'd lose all his Indian blood), but which Reel Wamps aptly captures as "woodwork Indian" as in "out of the."

How Cedric Cromwell Disguised Himself as an Indian (Mashpee Wampanoag) for the purposes of cashing in on the Native American gaming scheme run by Genting can be read in full here:


  1. Greed is good.
    Wonder why we are in turmoil?

  2. With the last full blooded Wampanoag Martha Simon passing away in 1859, NOBODY in the tribe is a Native American

  3. What race of people measure blood as do natives and haters some time one and the same. There are plenty natives at Mashpee and they have always been recognized by their peers. Who other than a coward speaks such bold words under anonymous. This is Gary Carter Jr. Narragansett, Pequot and who the hell are you. I'll answer that for you nobody but an immigrant and 100% Caucasian nice how we can fit you all under one blanket like that without need for your genealogy.Your day's of lies are over we aren't listening anymore.

  4. The Middleborough,Fall River, New Bedford, Bridgewater, Freetown-Lakeville, Taunton, Mashpee Nauset Wampanoag. Ridiculous, and Anonymous makes a valid point Sir.
