The Wikun (Shinnecock for “good”) Village, the Shinnecock Museum’s outdoor living history exhibit hosts a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 9 from 11 a.m. to noon, with a guided tour of the site planned beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The re-created late 17th century, early 18th century Shinnecock/Eastern Woodlands Village will officially open Saturday, May 25, although a preview weekend for the community will be held May 15 through May 20.

Wikun Village, located at 100 Montauk Highway in Southampton, is one of handful of premier Native American living culture sites in the eastern United States and the only one of its kind on Long Island.
