Ramapough Lanape Nation Told What It Can Do With Land It Owns

Remember…  The Ramapough Lenape Nation owns this land.

That’s important.

Township officials say the Ramapough Lenape Nation has ignored municipal summonses accusing it of failing to obtain zoning permits for tepees on tribal land and moving soil without a permit.

And this:

Though owned by the tribe, the only permitted uses on the property are public open space, agricultural uses, single-family homes and municipal facilities, according to township code.

So they own the land, and can only do certain prescribed things with it.

Does that seem just to you?  Because it sure as hell doesn’t to me.
