Wampanoag tribes jockey for position


The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) is turning to Facebook to pitch a casino plan for Fall River. As the state Senate is poised to begin debate of its casino legislation today, the Martha's Vineyard-based tribe wants state leaders to know it has a plan to bring a casino to 230 acres in Fall River. Aquinnah officials have said their proposed casino would preserve a biotechnology park planned in the city.
