The Leiber Collection Presents Shane Weeks – A History Of The Shinnecock Nation

The Leiber Collection in Springs welcomes Bizhiki Nibauit, Shane Weeks from The Shinnecock Nation as he discusses the history of Shinnecock and its relationship to other indigenous communities on Long Island and in the Northeast on Sunday, November 12, at 3 PM.

“I will discuss our culture and way of life as it has evolved throughout the pre-contact, colonial and modern eras of Shinnecock history, giving an overview of the timeline that brings our community into the present day,” said Weeks.

Weeks will have his book “Good Neighbors: A Shinnecock History From a Shinnecock Perspective” for sale as well. “Good Neighbors” is an exploration of local history told through the eyes of a Shinnecock member and it is a chance for readers to learn about this Indigenous nation’s rich culture and traditions.

Weeks’s upbringing on the Shinnecock Reservation has encouraged him to take on the responsibility of making the world better for future generations. He grew up understanding the importance of his culture and his connection to the natural world. His goal is to help encourage the preservation of his people’s history.
