Shinnecock Photo Project attempts to reinforce our connection to the land and aims to present ourselves in a web-based portraiture platform. This project is led by enrolled Shinnecock Indian Nation tribal member photographer Jeremy Dennis.
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.

David Bunn Martine: “David Waukus Bunn was one of the Shinnecock men who died on the shipwreck ‘Circassian’ in 1876. He was a first-mate on whaling ships. He was the father of Charles Sumner Bunn and Oscar Bunn. As a craftsman, he worked in ivory – scrimshaw carving as well as ebony. He is the great-great-grandfather of David Bunn Martine.”1
