Environmentalists on Olana: What You Don’t See: Examining Olana’s Landscape through Indigenous Eyes with Forge Project

Saturday, May 14, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$10 – $15

While the home and designed landscape of 19th-century artist Frederic Church sits upon a hill and overlooks the mighty Hudson River, there is a history that you don’t see. Before Church, before Olana, before the farmers who worked the land, there is a past that you don’t hear about or maybe even know about. Learn more about Indigenous histories, responses to extractive colonialism, and its climatic effects in Canada and the United States during this program led by Candice Hopkins, Executive Director of Forge Project. This program will also delve into Indigenous conceptions of wealth and reciprocity as forms of colonial resistance. Forge Project is a Native-led initiative centered on decolonial education, Indigenous art, and supporting leaders in culture, food security, and land justice.
$15 person, $10 members. Advanced registration required. For more information, please contact [email protected] This program is part of Olana’s Environmentalist on Olana series. To learn more, visit
