Invisible Native Americans

What really annoys me while on Long Island is how seemingly invisible indigenous people there are. I found this picture online:



at http://longislandgenealogy.com/indians.html

Note that it looks like that website was not written by an indigenous person and instead by an outsider.

Here is where the writer indicates that the land was bought:

From what I have read so far... it didn't look as though they were selling.

Here is a copy of the alleged treaty:

Of course I will have to read up on it because I don't know the history of Long Island. It's about time I do. What I find odd (and annoying) is how invisible they seem to be. I really think they should make themselves more visible and more vocal because it is their place.

Where are they?

Who are they?

Why haven't I heard about them?

Why haven't I heard them?

It's strange.
