East Hampton Library Presents A Zoom Discussion With Jeremy Dennis

The East Hampton Library’s Long Island Collection will present a live Zoom discussion with Jeremy Dennis about his “On This Site” project, on Monday, April 5, at 6:30 PM.

Dennis is an enrolled Shinnecock Indian Nation tribal member, artist, and photographer. During the presentation, he will discuss local indigenous East Hampton history as part of his project “On This Site,” which aims to preserve sacred Native American sites spanning 10,000 years to the present, throughout Long Island. He will also share artwork from his portfolio as it relates to Shinnecock history.

Jeremy Dennis’ “Ghost of the White Deer.”

The purpose of “On This Site” is to preserve and create awareness of culturally significant Native American locations on Long Island. This project presents an opportunity to reflect upon archaeological and oral histories to answer these essential culturally defining questions.

“My hope is to create curiosity for all audiences, as it creates a dialogue between indigenous and non-indigenous people on Long Island and legitimizes the Long Island indigenous population beyond their borders on reservations,” said Dennis.
