Acknowledging the land and its peoples
Floxsie is located in what is now Poughkeepsie, New York. This is the ancestral land of the Indigenous communities who were forcibly removed through land dispossession and violence.
Poughkeepsie exists on lands that were once home to the Delaware Nation, the Delaware Lenape Tribe and the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians.
These three groups work together to make decisions concerning historic preservation and repatriation in our region.
Poughkeepsie was originally named UPPUQUI-IPIS-ING - Reed covered lodge by the watering place. A spring named by the Lenape tribe.
