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.

VIVIAN B. HUNTER GRIGSBY, RN – 1912 – 1987. We will miss Cousin Vivian, always a faithful member of our Pow Wow Committee, on which she served as Director of the First Aid Program and Office. After serving in the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant, she spent many years as a nurse on staff at Central Suffolk Hospital. During her retirement Mrs. Grigsby served as Visiting Nurse for the Senior Citizens of the Shinnecock Reservation. She will be remembered for a life of devotion and loving cooperation with her family and tribe.
