If DNA samples of these alleged Shinnecock were taken, I wonder who would really turn out to be bona fide. Maybe those arrested are just hiding behind a false claim of native American heritage. The imposters need to be culled from the true native Americans!

This notion of "True American Heritage" is by far the biggest joke around. Do you really think a n y o n e considers you a true native amerikan? Get real! Open your eyes, look through the smoke (& mirrors)of your ancestors tribal fire.
I agree with Trey, you are nothing but impostors. The sad thing is that after all these years you still haven't found an identity. Can't wait for the next identity fad to come along. We can always use the laugh.

The real Shinnecocks are the ones who are willing to fight the struggle to survive on the East End of Long Island. With the Shinnecock Reservation being one of the US' oldest reservations, established in 1701, the Shinnecocks who live there now have worked to maintain their cultural heritage. The question is not of who the "real" Shinnecocks are. Racial mixing has been a part of the Shinnecock's survival, and everyone from there has that pride. It's, how do we re-establish our schools and community organizations to create economic stability and educational opportunity a reality?

It is too bad that, in order to clean up the Rez and respect the sacred land and respectable way of life, tribal leaders have had to resort to drastic measures, opening their "way of life" and ethnic integrity up to such bigotry.

I am half Spaniard (Spain) and half Taino ( Native American). Through proper and authenticated geneological methods, I have been able to trace my lineage all the way back to when Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean. Even more so, I have been able to trace my lineage back to Spain during the "Crusades" in Europe and beyond that time. It completely startles me when people claim aboriginal rights although they have not traced their ancestry by conclusive methods. I have personally been to the Shinnecock reservation during their "pow wow" and I can tell you first hand, it's not a matter of appearance, but behavior. I have never met a Shinnecock Indian who knew that they were descended from the aboriginals here at the time and also from the African "slaves" that were left behind after George Washington completed the work on the lighthouse in Montauk. Yes everyone, George Washington had slaves and when he went to Valley Forge, he left his slaves behind who in turn, found peace living among the true indigenous Indians on Long Island. The current Shinnecock Indians are so far removed ( genetically ) from the aboriginals, they should not have any claim to tribal land unless a DNA test is performed and they are at least 1/4 aboriginal. I, myself, am sick of people claiming to be Native American when they have practically no genetic proof or the proof is so negligible.

Everybody knows that what the non-natives want is to remove everybody from the really valuable land of the Shinnecock Reservation. The greed fest would be something to see. Developers from all over the world would want in, but I suspect there is already a cadre of greedy people all lined up and waiting. I think, if American Indians have to have a DNA test to find out how much Indian is in their blood we should do the same for the negros and mixed blood Mexicans and Hispanics, oh, is that rude and racist? Hmmmmm, Let's keep DNA out of it. I hope all the best for the Shinnecock Nation and their reservation.

i support the Shinnecock. i hope that if a 'shutting down' happens that innocents and supporters are not caught up in all of that. It is probably wise not to step on those who have crushed and decimated in the past. Lets hope for a peaceful solution (yeah i know its far fetched)
