Red Hook Natives

This is an image of the public painting in Hardscrabble Plaza in the Town of Red Hook
in New York's Hudson Valley. It was created in 2009
to commemorate Henry Hudson's arrival in 1609.

The painting and this website are dedicated to the Mohican and Wappinger Indians
-- both the ancestors who lived here many years ago, and their widespread descendants today --
and to the Red Hook and Rhinebeck communities as they strive
to honor the legacy of their history and to leave a healthy and vibrant legacy for their children.
