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.

The caption reads: “An excellent photo of three Shinnecocks taken shortly before the year of 1914. Wickham Cuffee is seated on the left and the woman on the right is Fanny Bunn who was the mother of Ada Bunn who appears in Photo 40.
Wickham’s wife Ellen is standing in the center. She has an old walking stick in her hand probably fashioned by her husband.”
