Charles Bunn was born and lived his entire life on the Shinnecock reservation, except for his education, graduating from Hampton Boarding School and acquiring a degree from New Paltz's Normal school. But his occupation was as hunting Guide and decoy maker for the "Rich & Famous.
In 1966 the hunting decoys made by Charles Bunns were wrongly attributed to a William Bowman of Lawrence L.I. Research began in 2002 by Jamie Reason who was soon joined in the project by Joseph Jannsen. Which proved the decoys to have been actually made by Charls Bunn. Today Charles Bunn is considered to be "The greatest shorebird carver whoever lived." If you need assistance setting up Zoom, contact email@example.com. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.
