The Shinnecock Indian Nation Tribal Council met with the Southampton Town Community Preservation Fund to suggest the town purchase a construction site on which skeletal remains were recently uncovered. Supervisor Jay Schneiderman believes the bones are from a Shinnecock member and should be preserved. The town still needs to appraise the property, which is currently owned by KB Southampton LLC of Water Mill. The owner is willing to sell the land to the town. Town officials don’t want to set a precedent with this potential purchase that’d discourage future reporting of found remains. 27East reports that the last time remains were found, at a former hotel in Bridgehampton, that town ponied up $5 million for the property. [27east]
