The Shinnecock Indian Nation of Southampton, New York, breathes new life through the renovation of a home that was once the heart of the community. Ma was a glamorous and loving spirit whose pow-wows put the house at capacity in the 1980s. Ma’s grandson, Jeremy, takes on the challenge of shifting the public perception of the Shinnecock Nation through transforming this once vibrant place into a communal art space designed to generate conversations around race and equality.
