Shinnecock Shamrock 20th Annual Event October 15th 2016 Bellport Village

Our first public venue continues after 20 years, this event was started as a welcome to our Northern Irish friends from County Tyrone, Armagh and the community of Dungannon, Northern Ireland. Shinnecock Shamrock is a cultural event that collaborates with Native and Irish musicians and dance to demonstrate tolerance of community diversity and inclusion for all members of this great wide world. In 1995 we traveled to Ireland to offer assistance in instructing and educating Irish youth about the ills of prejudice and racism as well as drug abuse. The collaboration was so successful that the Rotary Club of County Tyrone and many others wanted to support our efforts to stay connected. We incorporated and announced the founding of the Shinnecock-Sewanaka Society in 1996, our Irish friends accepted our invitation and we have been hosting this event ever since. The events shares friendships, music, food and gifts to celebrate our universal struggles and support for our youth and honoring our heroes. We added an honoring ceremony for our Native Veterans & all Veterans as a tribute to November & National Native American Heritage month. The VA of Northport’s Native American Office provides their Mobile Unit Van and joins us to honor Vet’s. Over the years we have hosted many international and local guests. We need your support, to continue our goal of serving Long Island’s under privileged and struggling students and families. Please join Blue Point Brewery, BJ’s Wholesale, Episcopal Church, & local restaurants & business’ and donate what you can!

About Us . . .

We are the descendants of Shinnecock priest Paul Cuffee and the Poospatuck leaders that advised the founding fathers of the U.S. Constitution, William Floyd, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson to name a few. Our organization is about preserving Native American history on Long Island. It is about instilling pride and building self esteem to our Native American members and providing young people with a culturally sensitive support system to enable and empower them to succeed. We provide educational programs and workshops on Native American Indian Culture, eastern Algonquin history, music, dance, interpretation of our language, health and healing alternatives and relaxation circles.

We are a 501c3 grassroots organization and rely on the generosity of the private donor. We receive no other funding from either tribal government. Your donations have provided help with heating homes, funerals, our grandmother's fund, and program support. Our visibility will increase once we have #304 Station Road completed and the Museum & Gift shop open.

Donations can be sent to the society at: P.O. Box 219, Bellport, NY 11713.
