Racist Graffiti Defaces Watuppa Pond Reservation in Fall River
FALL RIVER — Authorities are investigating after racist graffiti was found in Fall River.
The Herald News reports that racist graffiti was found by local members of the Wampanoag Tribe Thursday at the Watuppa Pond Reservation.
Found spray-painted on several structures, trees and even the ground were swastikas, the letters “KKK,” and several other unintelligible markings.
Officials within the Assonet Band of the Wampanoag Tribe and spokesmen for the Fall River Police Department have yet to respond to requests for comment.
Vice-chairman of the Pocasset Wampanoag Tribe of the Pokanoket Nation, Chief Daryl Black Eagle Jamieson, says he is aware of the graffiti and that he was dismayed by the news.
