Our friends in the Ramapough Lenape Nation are fighting against a new movie called “Out of the Furnace” that stereotypes their community.  The Ramapough have tribal lands located in Ringwood and Mawah, in Northern New Jersey. At our celebration on Saturday night many people signed a card of support to the Ramapough people which will be delivered to them today. Please look for opportunities to lend your support and solidarity.

Below is a link from from a news interview with Ramapough Chief Dwaine Perry and the mayor of Mahwah, N.J.
