Title

Teepee at Split Rock Sweet Water Prayer Camp - Ramapough Lenape Ceremonial Land.

Description

The teepee is not a traditional structure for Ramapough Lenape people, however it was erected symbolically on their ceremonial land when donated to the camp as a temporary structure. As the Ramapough have been kept from constructing a long-house ceremonial structure by the Township of Mahwah's zoning regulations, these temporary structures have been donated in solidarity and used for meetings, ceremonies and cultural gatherings.
