🔹 The Ramapough Lenape Nation has a deep and ancient connection to the land, water and living beings of the Hudson River Valley in what is now known as NJ and NY. For centuries they coexisted with Mahican, Esopus, and other tribes, cherishing the environment around them 🌍🙏
🔹 Chief Vincent Mann of the Turtle Clan, is a fierce advocate for the wellbeing of his people and the environment. From leading community health surveys after toxic dumping, to safeguarding water for millions, his dedication puts him at the forefront of environmental justice issues 🏞️⚖️
🔹 By working with the Ramapough Lenape and other Indigenous peoples, we can better understand sustainable practices that put nature first and nurture the environment. This cultural respect can create a brighter future for all communities - be they human, plant or animal 🌾 🦅 #HudsonSwim2023
