Patuckquapaug, 2016Archival Giclee Print1/1011.5 x 15.5 inches13.125 x 17.125 x 1.75 inches framed#artforsalePatuckquapaug, located on the edge of what is now known as 'Round Pond' in Sag Harbor, NY, was once a village site for what was likely a subgroup of the Shinnecock.The indigenous name for the village and pond were not recorded, however, the name Patuckquapaug has been appropriated from another text that describes a Round Lane in Connecticut:Patuckquapaen and Tuscumcatick are noted in French’s Gazetteer as names of records in what is now the town of Greenbush, Rensselaer County, without a particular location. The first is in part Algonquian and in part Dutch. The original was, no doubt, Patuckquapaug, as in Greenwich, Ct., meaning “Round pond.” The Dutch changed paug to paen descriptive of the land – low land – so we have, as it stands, “Round Land,” “elevated hassocks of earth, roots,” etc.Round Pond, described in the History of the Town of Southampton,Besides many individual lodge sites, a number of villages of considerable size existed and have been located…tradition relates that long after the settlement by the whites, their wigwams stood at the end of Round Pond.From the On This Site series. @onthissite •••••#artforsale #artcollector #modernart #contemporaryart #artgallery #fineart #nativeamerican #history #indigenous #artsale #art #artist #artcollectors #artwork #sale #illustration #artistsoninstagram #culture #homedecor #native #forsale #sagharborny #suffolkcounty
#Repost @parrishart• • • • • •“Our Artists, Our Neighbors” features photographer and 2018 #ParrishRoadShow artist @jeremynative, a member of the federally recognized Shinnecock Indian Nation in Southampton. Dennis’s digital photographs, often using himself as the model, explore indigenous identity, assimilation, and tradition.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Dennis once lived in Pennsylvania near rock quarries, and became fascinated with their textures. Years later, he discovered the #Iroquois legend of The Stone Coats—giant stone figures who roamed the forests competing for game animals with humans. (The tiny figure in the tree establishes scale.) “I used the quarry textures over my skin in the photograph, burning and dodging layers digitally. It accomplished the theme of the story for me.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Dennis himself is part of another legacy—artists on Long Island’s East End. “First and foremost, I’m a #Shinnecock artist, honoring a long legacy of great painters, carvers, and story tellers. Highlighting the Shinnecock Nation’s presence in Southampton is a personal mission and having my work in the Parrish supports that. I love that the Museum is committed to representing everyone in the community.” #OurArtistsOurNeighbors #EastEndArtists⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Jeremy Dennis (American, born 1990), “The Stone Coats,” 2014.
