About the Event

Centuries  ago, local people spoke a dialect of an Algonquian language that is now  called Munsee. The Munsee language is rich with beautiful, descriptive names for flora  and fauna. Join us for a tour of Vlei Marsh and learn how local  indigenous species names describe their uses and roles in native  culture. This walk is guided by ethnoecologist Justin Wexler of Wild  Hudson Valley,  an explorer of Hudson Valley native culture, language, and history  for twenty years.  These walks view local ecosystems through the lens of Hudson Valley  indigenous language and folklore.
