Chez Bushwick recognizes that we are located in D#34 of Bushwick Brooklyn since 2002, and co-founded CPR shortly after in 2008. Our organization respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Lenapehoking, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Lenape people. Specifically we are on Canarsie (Canarsee) Land, a Brooklyn tribe of the Lenape People.
In regards to our Hudson Valley program branch that includes our annual Hudson Eye Festival, it is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Muhheaconneok, who are the indigenous peoples of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past, present, and future, as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
