Native American Wigwam Construction

Saturday, June 1, 2019 - Friday, June 28, 2019

9:00 am to 2:00 pm - Our grounds are open daily from dawn to dusk.

On the Manor grounds, a Native American wigwam structure will be constructed by David Bunn
Martine, a Shinnecock Nation Tribal member and artist. The wigwam, a traditional domed saucer
shaped dwelling, used historically by Long Island Native Americans, will be constructed out of
collected reeds and wooden poles from the property. Manor House tours and programs will highlight
the culture and traditions of the local native peoples.
