Clearwater sails through the historic territories of different Wappinger, Mohican, and Munsee peoples, collectively known as the River People, Lenni Lenape. We perform our work in places these people have been violently expelled or erased from. We aim to help ensure that they are not forgotten and acknowledge relationships and claims to this area that are maintained to the present day by these people and communities, whether recognized by federal or state governments or living unseen in plain sight in Mohicanituckassaic (The Hudson Valley) and throughout the world.
