IMG_0671If you have a boat and boating gear or a bike or feet to walk 15 miles please join us. Also just come for a minute to say hi or stay for a potlatch.
 Two Row Treaty was created in 1613 between a dutch community of settlers on Governors Island, many to made a living selling animal fur to Europe.The treaty was to keep the peace between the two cultures on the river of life that sustained them. us. The river that flows both ways. The river the settlers named “The Hudson River”.
IMG_0656Both cultures agreed to travel on this river in peace, never crossing (step 3 of Heron medicine) as long as the sky is blue grass is green and the birds are flying…We can’t bring back the dead and I personally can’t give back land but I can keep the river clean. The river of life we share and the resources we share.
The Two Row Camp seeks to re-honor this treaty by meeting at the river every year from August 1-10 at the same riverside spots. We remind people of this treaty. We have a “box of tools” in which river town communities can use to bring health back to the estuary, the land, the river, themselves, their communities and the earth.
Yay!

The information on the tworow.camp web site is from last year, the first year and only part of it.
This is a non-hierarchical, autonomous camp based on protecting the watershed and nature as part of an agreement made in 1613 called the Two Row Treaty.
Please be generous, share, be self-sufficient and communicate to coordinate with everyone else.  Understand we are all over scheduled yet trying our best to make this happen. All hands on deck.IMG_0665
