About the Event

For centuries, native people traveled through the Catskill Mountains on well-known paths and visited select locations for hunting elk, passenger pigeons and other game. By the 18th century, secluded valleys became a refuge for families retreating from Euro-American settlement. This presentation will explore the identity of these communities and tell their stories.  As part of the "Lunch & Learn" series at Clinton Comminuty Library, registration is FREE and includes lunch! Registration opens in March on the library's Online Calendar

About the speaker: Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley has spent the last 20 years conducting archival and ethnographic research to understand the history, culture, and land management practices of the native people of the Hudson and Delaware Valleys.
