"All over our hills are our sacred burial sites," Rebecca Genia, a Shinnecock Member who identifies herself as a Shinnecock Grave Protections Warrior. "We are going to ask that our ancestors please help us."The Shinnecock Indian Nation is working with the Town of Southampton's Community Preservation Fund to raise the funds.
