Ramah was originally settled by Mormon pioneers for the purpose of missionary work to be carried out within the Zuni and Navajo communities. Ramah Lake was built by these same Mormon pioneers in order to farm the surrounding area, which receives little rainfall on a yearly basis. This trait is shared by many areas in the state of New Mexico. In recent years, the lake has mostly dried up, and while fishing was once a popular activity, the environment is now unsustainable.Ramah lies between the Zuni Indian Reservation, the Ramah Navajo Indian Reservation, and the Cibola National Forest.
