Moskehtu Consulting, LLC is an Indigenous owned and operated Cultural & Heritage Preservation firm. It was founded in 2019 by Chenae Bullock, an enrolled Shinnecock Indian Nation Tribal Member and descendant of the Montauk Tribe in Long Island New York. She is also African American. Chenae is an entrepreneur, pioneer, Indigenous perspective historian, and cultural practitioner. Following her ancestors footsteps as whalers and business leaders, the foundation of her work has been based on the resurgence of the traditional canoe culture of the northeast coastal Algonquin communities.She has organized historically sacred paddles in the ancient waterways of the northeastern seaboard. Some of her most recent work has led her to assess for signs of submerged cultural history for the Atlantic Shores Cultural Core Analysis. She successfully served as a Tribal Alternate on behalf of the Shinnecock Nation for the Mid-Atlantic Committee on the Ocean, which facilitates coordination and collaboration among governmental entities and stakeholders to enhance the vitality of our region’s ocean ecosystem.
After working at many accredited Indigenous museums such as the Shinnecock Indian Museum and Cultural Center, Plimoth Plantation, and Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center she recognized the urgent need for more Indigenous consulting firms.
She has established this company due to the lack of cultural competency occurring in the governmental sectors, corporate sectors, and in individual lives. As an indigenous person who not only has the academic background regarding indigenous people’s position when it comes to history and environmental issues, she also lives it every day. Her aim has been to start a company that can consult with clients, to create stewardships in these areas that affect each and every one of us.
