5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

We mourn the passing of Harriet Gumbs a/k/a/ Princess Starleaf of the Shinnecock Nation here on Long Island. I had the opportunity to meet this grand lady some years ago at the Shinnecock Powwow. One could not fail to be impressed by her grace. I have also met several times with one of her sons, Lance, who has been a trustee of the Shinnecock Nation. She was much accomplished in life. You can read her obituary in Newsday 12/4/20. She will be missed.
