An art space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color
Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio Inc. is led by Indigenous artist Jeremy Dennis. The project began in June 2020 and serves as a communal art space based on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton, New York. The family house, built in the 1960s, features a residency program for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), art studio, library, along with hosting an array of art and history-based programs for tribe members and the broader local community. A not-for-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio Inc. was chartered in 2021 in the State of New York.
Join us in helping to create this space by making a fully tax-deductible contribution today.

more about Ma's House
Shinnecock Indian Nation tribal members volunteering in housing rehabilitation efforts during the 2020 renovation. Taking a break after removing the 700+ pound rusted furnace from the basement of Ma’s House.
Since June 2020, we raised over $40,000 to renovate and replace leaky plumbing, pouring a new cement floor in the basement to cover the dirt, and replacing the floor of the kitchen and bathroom.
On Indian Reservations, it is often nearly impossible to secure a mortgage or loan to build a home, and even more difficult to find homeowners insurance.
