Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head

The Wampanoag Tribe are situated in Aquinnah and throughout the island of  Noepe.

The tribe website is simple, keeping images to the home page. An automatic slideshow of pictures shows the Aquinnah land, and is surrounded by menus, including events and news. Although the special events are up-to-date, the tribal news has not been updated since 2010.

Looking through the menu pages, the website is short and to the point. The History & Culture page gives a brief history of the tribe and the arrival of the European settlers, as well as some information on the legal status of the tribe.

The Tribal Council page gives a table of information about the council, and informs the visitor how the tribe's government works. The Departments page is much the same, containing just a table of information on each department.

The Special Events page features a calendar, which has no events listed, and the Tribal Housing Authority page, just as the Tribal Council page, has just a table of information and a brief description of the housing authority's purpose and aims. The Tribal Enterprises page features only two hyperlinks, one of which links to a page of the tribe website that gives no information other than an address and telephone, and the other of which links to an external site for the company, which is much more professional than the tribe website itself.

The simple and to-the-point website suggests that it is there for functionality, to provide an online resource for basic information and contact details of the tribe. The Aquinnah Wampanoag Enterprises website, meanwhile, was likely built by a professional web builder.
