Kasikasima as well as the Tebutop, the Magneetrots, and the Roseveltpiek were first mapped in 1904 during the Tapanahony expedition.
In the 1990s, a village called Kampu was set up near Mount Kasikasima at the instigation of an evangelist, who had the intention of making the place a bible camp and meeting point of the Tiriyó of Suriname and Brazil. The population as of 2013 is 10 to 20 people.2°58′47″N 55°24′39″W / 2.97972°N 55.41083°W
