Kuweequahsun, (Greetings)

Nutus8ees Dasia Peters. Nuwtomas Maseepeeut kah nutay Maseepeeut. My name is Dasia Peters. I am from and I live in Mashpee. I am honored to be this year's Mashpee Wampanoag Powwow Princess. As princess, I am expected to both represent and give back to my tribal community. Some of my duties include: Attending Powwows in the New England area, attending all tribal social gatherings as called upon, maintaining a high GPA, living a drug and alcohol free lifestyle, serving the community,  possessing knowledge of Wampanoag culture and history, etc. These expectations are to ensure that whoever the princess is, she is ready and able to be a positive role model within the tribe. There will also be times where I, as princess, will represent the Wampanoag nation both statewide and nationally. This position is one that is passed down annually by young Wampanoag women, and I am humbled to be serving in this role for the 2021-2022 term.

Kutâpatôtamawush (Thank you),

Dasia Peters
