DetailsEvent Type Historic Site Tour/History Description Hosted on Solaris, the 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.
