I grew up in cupsaw went to erskine and eg hewitt. I moved to ariz in the mid 60's I was friends with alot of kids from the mines. That was a diffrent time. There was segrgation but it was not noticed until you tried to invite someone over. When we asked why we were told because or got smacked in the head and where told not to ask stupid questions
We where children we didn't know it was wrong. And it wasn't! Perhaps if are parents had seen the error of there was There wouldn't be this stupidity

i have always wondered why the ringwood indians worry so much about what people say about them. when the truth is,a week doesn't go by without one of them coming out in the news paper for breaking the law.they might want to tell their own to stop bringing shame to the family

i really think that every1 that is commenting on this should really do their research. I have a child with 1 of the men from the Ringwood area n they r really good people that don't need 2 b dumped on. I am a white women so i'm not racist like the rest of u idiots. But I will say that the people of the Ringwood area do stand by their family i can't really say that about the whites.

DUH !!!SINCE WHEN DO INDIANS ALL LOOK ALIKE ?? I HAVE KNOWN THEM FOR FIFTY YEARS, THEY ARE BLACK. THEY DO NOT ALL LOOK ALIKE ANY MORE THAN WHITES DO.. IF YOU LOOK AT THEM YOU CAN SEE THAT THEY ARE AFRICAN AMERICAN. IF FACT THEY NEVER MENTIONED INDIANS WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH THEM. TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT INDIANS REALLY LOOK LIKE .THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE BLACK SO THEY CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA.THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN AS THE MINIES AND THE JACKSON WHITES. THEY WANT GOVERNMENT PAYOUTS. FREE HOUSING NO TAXES AND DON'T FORGET CASINOS !!THEY ARE AS MUCH INDIAN AS OBAMA.

NJ recognizes them as a "tribe". The federal government does not however. Jackson whites is a derogatory term NJ citizen. If they aren't descendants of indians it's strange how they all look alike.

Im not afraid to use my real name as are you all. Im 1st generation american on my mothers side and 2nd on my fathers. A real Jersey Girl. This country is based on peoples from all lands and we are great because of that mixing. Nations who try to stay pure are full of anger and hatred and usually are not very powerful. But I notice also that everyone leaves God out of the argument. You are all very angry and don't spell properly but I wont judge anyone. We are all brothers and sisters and hatred only leads to death. Please leave this site and learn about the God who made you. If you know his love you will live in peace.

I think everyone is missing the point of the whole mann vs ford documentary. The point is that a big corporation poisoned the Ringwood land and many other spots in the surrounding areas. One of them being close to where I live, ours was capped correctly thank goodness. Why ours was and theirs wasnít not sure besides the fact ford owned that property and not ours, I donít believe race played a factor. I have grown up knowing them and all kinds of people, white black Spanish Italian Dutch etc etc your background doesnít make you good or bad the person themselves do. I think every one should take a step back n mind their own business. I live close to the mines myself to this day so does that make me a miney?

Just watched the documentary about how Ford poisoned the forest and dumped waste on the land of these people. So much has happened to these folks, the mining, racism, and so many health problems. I feel the need to give them all a huge hug and a huge way to go! Persevering through all of the BS they have gone through. I know some of our natives in Canada have had a hard time and haven't always been treated right but the Ramapo example takes being treated like crap to a whole new level.
You really are a strong group and I hope you find a way to preserve your past, your language and culture and somehow find a better place to live.

I work in ringwood and live nearby. I just took a ride to vdl and saw the most beautiful faces. True, it's not the best area but it was worth the ride when I saw the closest resemblance to my Native American people. They were not black but dark with beautiful straight hair. I saw a man that looked to be an elder. What an honor! And how sad they continue to be treated as 2nd class citizens after all they went through and all that was taken away from them. I am American but I'm so proud to be part Taino with African and Spanish blood. Sadly, the Taino tribe was completely exterminated due to the colonial colonization, but I am proud to carry the blood and try to learn as much as I can about my ancestry. But it touches my heart even more when I can see what we, Tainos, once were, and could've been. Thank you.

Ok, so if they your kids didn't get the drugs from these "pretend" Indians, they would've got it from Paterson or Wyckoff. Or didn't you know Wyckoff has a large use of heroin and well, Paterson is Paterson. Maybe you should teach your child not to use drugs. But it's so much easier to blame someone else for your family issues than to actually do the parenting.
