New York Indians Battle a Gas Pipeline Project

30 04 2017

This will be coming up in the news –

The Pilgrim Pipeline is slated to run through the Ramapough Lenape Nation’s territory—though the tribe is preparing to fight it.

Members of the Ramapough Lenape Nation live just 30 miles outside of New York City, near Mahwah, New Jersey. They’ve grown accustomed to gas stations and further development entering their community and covering tribal burial grounds.

Potentially next on the list is a pair of oil pipelines that would run from Albany, New York to Linden, New Jersey. . . .

Statement from Chief Dwaine C. Perry, Ramapough Lunaape Nation

They are concerned about their aquifer.

News 12 N.J. – “The Ramapough say that their situation is similar to the Sioux Nation in North Dakota who are also fighting a pipeline. The Sioux are federally recognized, but the Ramapough are not. The tribe does receive recognition from New Jersey.” (report & video)
