In order to reach Aquinnah, you must bike through Chilmark, whose rolling hills and landscape resemble northern new england. When you reach remote Aquinnah, you will discover a village very different from other island towns. Many Wampanoags have settled in Aquinnah, and the town reflects this heritage. Most Wampanoag tribe members no longer earn their living farming and fishing as did their ancestors. Some are now store proprietors selling American indian items in the shops on top of the Gay Head Cliffs.
