Although the Ramapough Mountain Indians have resided in the Ramapough Mountains for more than three hundred years, there is very little documentation in New York or New Jersey that refers to the tribe. There are many reasons for this, starting with the lack of a written language by the Lenape people. The written history of the native people in this area was always left to the non-native community to write, and with their ignorance of Lenape ways and language, their documentation was seldom accurate. Therefore, we rely on our oral history more than the writings found in the history books.
