    News Release

    Ramapo-Munsee Lunaape Nation

    On Saturday, June 4, Maqua (Chief) Dwaine Perry and Owl Steve Dennison Smith of the Ramapo-Munsee Lunaape Nation will host a ceremony at the Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp to receive an original deed for land located in today’s Towns of Ramapo and Suffern, New York, and the Townships of Mahwah and Ringwood, New Jersey from descendants of the Sloat family.
    “It’s wonderful that we can finally unify history around the truth,” observes Perry. “This document brings the era of denial to an end. The Ramapo-Munsee Lunaape were an integral part of the initial success of this country and as such we were thanked by being written out of America's history nearly completely.”

    This Deed, which has been passed down through six generations of Sloats, purports to convey title to a tract of land called Pothat to one Wynnant (or Winant) van Gelder, by several members of the Ramapo-Munsee Lunaape Nation (named as Manis, Wactan, Sewes, Ayco and Nakama). Pothat is identified as being in Orange County in the Province (or colony) of New Jersey and today is most likely parts of the Towns of Ramapo and Suffern, New York, and the Townships of Mahwah and Ringwood, New Jersey. The Deed was originally made on March 7, 1737.

    Van Gelder subsequently transferred his rights to one Isaac van Dusan on June 13, 1747, who then assigned the Deed to Stephen Sloat on June 3, 1763.

    The ceremony is private, by invitation only. Press are invited with prior arrangements. Alternate rain location will be provided.

    Because the U.S. Flag is the symbol of our country, it should always be displayed in the most prominent, most honored position. No other flag should ever appear more important.
