Schoortasche

Schoortasche

The Schoortasche, also called Scoor Dutch or Schoor Dutch refers to the people and culture of the Hudson River Valley who are of Dutch or mixed Dutch ancestry. They may also be called simply Hudson Valley Dutch. They are descended from the poorest classes and of their native Holland and other southern and insular provinces of the former United Netherlands.

The term appears to be a compound of scoor or schoor, meaning laborsome or hard-working and Tasche, meaning Dutch, in the dialect.
