About the Event

Hosted on Solaris, 100% Solar Powered Vessel Built and Operated by the Hudson River Maritime Museum!

For countless generations, Algonquian-speaking peoples relied on the  Hudson River and its tributaries for their survival. Come aboard the  Solaris to explore indigenous life on the Hudson River as it was five  centuries ago. Depending on season, tide and weather, visitors will  learn about everything from the role of the tide in gathering wetland  plants and shellfish, to weather lore and bird folklore and names in the  local indigenous Munsee language. Tours are guided by ethnoecologist Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley, who has studied Hudson Valley  indigenous culture, language, and history for twenty years.
