VIDEO: Jeremy Dennis featured in video highlighting his Dreamstarter Project

Jeremy was featured by the Big Ten network for his work on his Dreamstarter Project, On This Site, which aims to document important historical and cultural sites of the Shinnecock people.

“Self-esteem is a pretty common issue in a lot of indigenous communities, especially in my own life, just a feeling of not belonging. Growing up in public school systems, you never really hear about your own Native American past,” Dennis said. “I hope with creating On This Site, I can create a resource that is both academic and authentic to the tribe that tribal men and the youth can access. That way they won’t have to grow up not knowing their own history.”
