Shinnecock, People of the Stony Shore Photo Project attempts to reinforce our connection to the land and aims to present ourselves in a web-based portraiture platform.
The Shinnecock Portrait Project is made possible with Special thanks to MDOC Storyteller’s Institute hosted at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, in June 2018.
