The Mohican homelands extend along the Hudson River from south of Pine Plains and the Roelof Jansen Kill, south of the present Connecticut-Massachusetts border on northward to Lake George and the upper portions of Lake Champlain, and from the Catskill and Helderberg mountains on the west eastward into the upper Housatonic River Valley and western New England.

It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Muhheaconneok or Mohican people and the Munsee Lenape people, who are the indigenous peoples of this land.  Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from this land, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community.


This land is near the homelands of other indigenous peoples and First Nations, including the Schaghticoke First Nations.  Indigenous peoples continue efforts to reclaim and steward the land today.


We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative space for all.
