New leaders may control the daily operations of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, but the same old complaints fester. Outspoken opponents of chairman Cedric Cromwell and his administration have called for a tribal meeting Sunday. They are seeking information about tribe finances and a quickly dissolving deal with casino investors. It's been six months since Cromwell took over the tribe, which had been tainted by a scandal involving its former chairman and secretive deals.
