The three decades between 1755 and 1785 were a time of major upheaval for the native peoples of the Hudson Valley, culminating in a war that forced them out of their ancestral homeland. This presentation tells the dramatic story of the Esopus Indians and their neighbors during this turbulent period by weaving together an array of archival sources and little-known oral history.
This lecture is presented by ethnoecologist Justin Wexler, a researcher of Hudson Valley indigenous culture, language, and history for over twenty years.
This program is being presented in person at the Hudson River Maritime Museum's Wooden Boat School and virtually via Zoom.
The Wooden Boat School is located at 86 Rondout Landing, Kingston, NY 12401. If you are attending in-person, we will have a seat reserved for you.
