Join us for a presentation on the local Wappinger People, a distinct Lenape group of the Hudson Highlands. This presentation explores the amalgamation of Lenape groups around New York Bay and in the Hudson Highlands over the course of the 17th century, their transformation into the Wappinger people of the colonial era, and their forced trek westward to their contemporary descendant communities in Wisconsin, Ontario and Oklahoma.
Ethnoecologist Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley has studied Hudson Valley indigenous culture, language, and history for over twenty years, both connecting with their communities in exodus and doing extensive archival work on their recent ancestors.
