The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts has named David Greendeer, a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, as tribal administrator.

Tribal Chairman Brian Weeden praised Greendeer’s “impressive record of building successful programs and economic enterprises across Indian Country. It’s an area that our Tribal Council wanted our next Tribal Administrator to be comfortable with, and we now have that with David.”
