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.

The caption reads: “Giant rocks appear on tribal lands in Westwoods, Hampton Bays. This site off the Peconic Bay has large rocks along the shore, which have been part of tribal shore lore for generations. In the 1940s, tribal member Lace Eleazer (left) was photographed with relatives there, including Nettie Cuffee Eleazer (facing the camera).” (Courtesy of Eugene E. Cuffee II.)
