Massachusetts Reserves

As of 2007, the only officially listed reservation in Massachusetts is The HASSANAMISCO RESERVATION in Grafton (4 1/2 acres).

However, because the Aquinnah Wampanoag are federally recognized, AQUINNAH on Martha's Vineyard Island is sometimes considered a reservation. In effect it is, but they are subject to state and local laws (through their settlement agreement).
