Understanding Wendell MA

    I just became aware that: "A group that’s protesting state plans to start logging at Wendell State Forest is preparing a petition calling for a halt in those plans as well as a weekly Saturday protest along Route 2 on Saturday (Sept. 22 2018)."
     And then I click my way to this article that states: " A group of collaborating Native American tribes has offered to work with Massachusetts towns to identify landscapes of ceremonial or religious significance to their heritage, and Wendell is taking them up on that...The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) and the Pequot, Mohegan and Narragansett tribes are collaborating on this and have signed a memorandum of understanding with Wendell to share authority of sites of an indigenous nature."
     A Google Image search brings up a whale of an example of Sacred Indigenous Ceremonial Stone Landscape feature:
   I consider that it's "State Land," and the State is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
   Not all that far from the Turners Falls Ceremonial Hill.
    I think I'm beginning to understand...
