“THE SQUAD”, PRESIDENT TRUMP: “SEND THEM BACK”, ANDREW JACKSON’S STOLEN LAND! “THE FOUNDING FATHER’S BUSINESS”? REV. J. JACKSON SR.: “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” AND THE UNITED NATION’S MAROON DELEGATE FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Today is  July 21st, 2019, it’s a beautiful and sunny Southern California day, many people I know are on their way to church in these trying times full of social duress.  However, there are still a lot of good things and good people in the world who are working to spread world peace and justice ,Amen.

I called in this morning to Reverend Jesse Jackson’s : “Keep Hope Alive” radio program aired on WVON broadcasting from Chicago, Ill. The topic was about President Trump’s :SEND THEM BACK” statement. Below is a transcript of my statement:

“Greetings Reverend Jackson, sister Santita, and panel.  Racially, I’m an African-Native American, Culturally, I’m a Seminole Maroon Descendant, but to most of the people of America that see me on the street , I’m just another flavor of BLACK!

In April of this year I completed a session at the “United Nation’s Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues” as a delegate. I was representing the “Freedom Fighting” Maroon Descendants of the United States, for the Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation.

Concerning the uninvited European invaders encountered by the 1st Nations of North America, there is no report that the pilgrims brought land with them. The already “OCCUPIED” land that they found became : STOLEN LAND. They took it by: “ANY MEANS NECESSARY”.

The next step after : “SEND THEM BACK”…is “PHYSICAL REMOVAL” ! President Trump’s hero is Andrew Jackson, Gereral and President Jackson killed and removed Indians to make room for enslaved Blacks  who were worked to death on : Cotton,Cane and Rice prisons.

“THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF AMERICA were Business Men and taking Indian Land and enslaving Blacks was Business as Usual”

Call ends.

Since Andrew Jackson is President Trump’s :”MAN IN THE MIRROR” I think that all his actions that are: “JACKSONIANLIKE” should be publically compared and parallels drawn and defined to illustrate this type of  outdated leadership.

LEGENDARY SCHOLAR/AUTHOR /ATTORNEY/DR. GERALD HORNE ON WOLDC NEWS THE CARL NELSON :DID THE U.S. “FOUNDING FATHERS” MAKE INDIAN TREATIES THAT EXTORTED LAND AND FORCED INDIANS TO PAY “REPARATIONS” TO PLANTATION OWNERS FOR BLACKS WHO ESCAPED ENSLAVEMENT?

Hooray and Hallelujah

Today is July 4th, 2019, Happy Independence Day to all. I’m writing this Blog from Southern California the weather is gorgeous, Sunshine and a gentle Sea breeze set the stage  for countless celebrations that are happening across the country.  Here in L.A. earlier this morning we were surprised  by an earthquake. Hopefully, that it’s for now and let us pray for the many homeless persons in the area and around the world.

I called into the WOLDC NEWS: Carl Nelson Show. Today’s guest was the Legendary Scholar Attorney Dr. Gerald Horne. I have been waiting to pose this question to him and I finally got my chance today.  Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Hotep Brother Carl and “Attorney Dr. Gerald Horne. “I ain’t no scholar” but I am an informed documented Seminole Maroon Descendant and dedicated Activist. This year I made a bit of History by completing a session at the: United Nations Permanent Forum on indigenous Issues as the United States Representative of the Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation.  It is a Non-Governmental Organization that repesents hundreds of thousands of Maroons and Maroon descendants  in the Caribbean.

My question to you Attorney Dr. Horne is , have you ever in all your enormous body of work focused on Indian Treaties made by the “FOUNDING FATHERS of AMERICA” where they not only extorted land but they also demanded that the Indians return all Blacks who had escaped from enslavement .  In addition , if the Indians did not comply they were forced to pay “REPARATIONS” to those Plantation Owners.  They paid not only for those Blacks who had escaped but for their “increase”, meaning the childfren born while they they were FREE.

Examples of treaties like this would have been : The  1790 Treaty of  New York (including the Secret Articles), The Treaty of Colerain and The Treaty of Indian Springs.”

Dr. Horne listed some of his book titles that touched on this topic. ended the call by saying, to me : “Thank you for your highly intelligent  question”

WOLDC NEWS CARL NELSON , “MARK FROM ANAHEIM” AND THE MWCoC’s 2019 MAROON DELEGATE TEAM, MAKES HISTORY AT THE UNITED NATION’S: PERMANENT FORUM ON INDIGENOUS RIGHTS, SAYS “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

“Today is June 1st, 2019, I’m writing this from Southern California, near Santa Monica Bay  and LAX.  It’s 7:55 am and the weather is a bit overcast. Let us pause to pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Yesterday was Friday and for the first time since my UN trip in April I called in to the Carl Nelson on “OPEN PHONE FRIDAY”.

Below is a transcript of my call:

“Hotep Brother Carl thanks to you and others, History was made at the United Nation’s :Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues” in New York City, NY..  This year the “Freedom Fighting” Maroon descendants of Suriname, Jamaica, Trinidad/Tobago and the United States were represented there. Seminole Maroon descendant Phil Fixico represented the Maroons of the United States.

Earlier, in the show a caller named Rick had spoke about the Blacks who had foght during the Civil War. When my other delegate team members ask me to describe one pathway from enslavement to marronage in the U.S., I use the example of the approximately 200,000 United States Colored Troops who fought for the Union during the Civil War. i even include the women and children women and children because they met the established critera for a: Maroon Society.

They escaped the plantation depriving the confederacy of their labor. They crossed a border and formed an alliance with others and finally they won their Freedom and it was recognized by a treaty. The problem is of self-identity, they wereconvinced by the Dominant Culture that “they” had been freed and began calling themselves “Freedmen”.

Carl Nelson thanked me for calling in and informed me that “Mark from Anaheim” had inquired about me earlier that morning. Call ends.

Below is a copy of the position statement that our delegate team made and was delivered by :Her Excellency Dr. Ambassador Fidelia Graand-Galon:

” Since the “Out of America “theory of human migration is widely accepted we will use that as our foundation. The Maroons of  the Western Hemisphere were not immigrants. They were Kidnap victims removed from the primary crime scene of their African Homeland to the secondary crime scene of the Western Hemisphere. Where their previous indigenous connections were intentionally destroyed. The purpose of destroying a human being was to benefit the Corporate Plantation System and the Slavocracy that held them hostage for centuries. Therefore, their Indigenous connection must be replaced by Treaty. Law or Act. We presented legal arguments in favor of Maroon communities as Indigenous, with the rights to opportunities and privileges as other Indigenous Peoples. We should begin this process of repair by asking the United Nations to designate Maroons as Indigenous.

Therefore giving us the opportunity, to establish our inviolable sovereignty, rights to self-determination and freedom. “We are African not because we were born in Africa, but because Africa is born within us, and we will continue to live our lifestyles and traditions that we inherited from ancestors regardless of where ever we are, hence Africa is Grandma now and America is Mama”.

Each participating representative of the member countries was granted the opportunity to present their respective Maroon communities at the MWCoC side event on Tuesday the 23rd of April, at the Trinidad & Tobago” Permanent Mission at the United Nations, supported by Ambassador Penelope Beckles and Senator Garvin Simmonette of the Trinidad & Tobago Senate. Subsequently we presented our cause to the United Nations on the 25th of April, on Friday the 26th the Ambassador to the Permanent Mission of the United Nations Of Trinidad & Tobago presented on Indigenous Peoples of Trinidad and Tobago and the case of Suriname Maroons at the Human Right Court in Costa Rica. We also were given the chance to tell our stories at the United Nation Media Zone with the Peace Caravan”.

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Today is May 19th 2019. This is Malcom X’s birthdate he would have been 94 years young. Later ,I hope to attend a conference at my old alma mater Los Angeles Southwest College today’s special guest is announced candidate for POTUS Senator Kamal Harris.

In the photo above you see me laid out by Mr. Rudy Ray Moore’s  (AKA “DOLOMITE”) Stunt/Actor . Yes, earlier in my life I was involved with Theater and Acting. However, because I had a wife and children to support I couldn’t depend on being a “wannabe”Actor. For that reson and after discovering my true ancestry, I completely gave it up to devote all of my excess time to saving my family’s history. I think that in part I accomplished that with the help of others including : Dr. Kevin Mulroy, Dr, Joseph Opala and Professor Wm. Katz .

For etertainment , educational or just for your information I will attach a link to this Blog that uses the above scene taken from “PEATEY WHEATSRAW” “THE DEVIL”S SON-IN_LAW” . Caution : The language is explicit and representative of the genre and the era:

P.S.:Blaxploitation movies, group of films made mainly in the early to mid-1970s that featured black actors in a transparent effort to appeal to black urban audiences. Junius Griffin, then president of the Beverly Hills chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), is sometimes credited with inventing the somewhat ambiguous term blaxploitation to describe the short-lived genreMelvin Van Peebles’s Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song (1971) is usually considered to be the first of many black-themed movies that would present a new film image of African Americans.

“FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO AT THE UNITED NATION’S PERMANENT FORUM ON INDIGENOUS RIGHTS. REPORT TO THE AMBASSADOR (BELOW)

Greetings Your Excellecy Dr. Ambassador  Dr. Fidelia Graand-Galon. May I say that the opportunity to participate at this year’s United Nation’s Permanent Forum on Indigenoud Issues was truly  the  highlight of my career as a Seminole Maroon Activist. I think that as far as a report is concerned, It will be better that I submit the words that I said at the  Trinidad/tobago side event and at the UN Media interview. The first presentation was on April 24th, 2019 at theT&T Embassy and it went like this:

“Greetings we are thankful for the opportunity to address this prestigeous body, concerning Indigenous  Peoples and Nations, since the “Out of Africa” theory is widely accepted we will use that as our foundation.  The Maroons of the Western Hemisphere were not immigrants . They were kidnap Victims removed from the primary crime scene of their African Homeland to the secondary crime scene of of the Western Hemisphere. Where their previous indigeneity was intentally destroyed . The scene from the Mini-series ;”ROOTS” where Kunta Kinte was whipped until he admitted two things: 1. his new name was now ‘Toby” and his punisher was now his : “MASTER”. This was how enslaved Human Beings were broken and this conditioning was re-inforced generation by generation. the purpose of destroying a human being like this was done to benefit the Corporate Plantation System and the Slavocracy that held them hostages for centuries.

Therefore, their Indigenous  connection must be replaced by: Treaty, Law, or Act.  We should begin this process of REPAIR by asking the United Nations to designate Maroons as Indigenous. Africa is grandma now and and America Is Mama, The Mongolian Land Bridge people were immigrants. They migrated to a new habitat in what would become North American  . When the Colonizers found them here they incorrectly labeled them as indigenous. Later on, they would name themselves “The First Nation” . Using them as a role model and since we were Kidnap Victims, we will name ourselves, “The Forced Nation” and  we should be designated as Indigenous since our indigeneity was completely destroyed. We want and deserve to be designated as the “FORCED NATION” and this designation should come with all the rights that come with Indigenous status. We begin this process by requesting that the UNPFII accept our request.

On Friday April 26th our Team was invited to be filmed at the UN Media Center. Here, I mentioned this: During the Enslavement era there were 4 types of Blacks in this cruel system: 1. The House enslaved person,. 2. The Field enslaved person. 3. The marginally Free person.  4. This person usually wasn’t talked about because they were “Freedom Fighting Maroons”.  Undenieably the “FIRST NATION” and the “FORCED NATION” often times they formed alliances out of necessity. They would for a time, fight together, die together, intermarry together and survive together. Both societies were under constant stress living as embattled descendants of traumatic heritages. we must free their story from the stone and the stories of those who sought to help them. the Maroons must be designated as indigenous. Only in this manner can their rightful place in History prevail as “FREEDOM FIGHTING PATRIOTS of THE WESTEN HEMISPHERE.

“FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO” SPEAKS ON : REV. JESSE JACKSON’S, STEVIE WONDER AND CARL NELSON’S RADIO SHOWS ABOUT THE “MAROON WOMEN CHAMBER OF COOPERATION’S DIPLOMATIC TEAM” HEADING TO THE UNITED NATION’S PERMANENT FORUM ON INDIGENOUS ISSUES, APPEARING THERE : 4/22/19 – 5/3/19

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Today is April 14th, 2019 and I’m writing this blog from Los Angeles ,California a few miles from Santa Monica Bay.  We must pray for our fellow brothers and sisters who are less fortunate than ourselves and make a special prayer for the chldren that are with them.

On Friday April 12th, 2019, I spoke on two nationally broadcasted Black Consciousness radio programs : Stevie Wonder’s Frontpage KJLH in Inglewood,Ca. and also later that day on Mr. Carl Nelson’s  Washington D.C.,WOLDC NEWS show. Then, this morning in an “Embarassment of Riches” I spoke on Reverend Jesse Jackson’s : “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” radio show which is heard on WVON  broadcasting out of Chicago, Ill..

I will not give a transcript of my comments on either of the shows.  However, I will discuss the fact that on all three shows I spoke about my being invited to the “UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues” as part of the Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation’s delegation to UN Headquarters, NY, NY begining on April 22nd, 2019.

I have been  a Seminole Maroon Activist for 20 years after discovering my true  genealogy at 52 years of age. I have had to learn ,research and confront many of the issues that will be discussed at the UN, with the exception that in New York there will be an emphasis on the International implications. The MWCoC represents Maroons in the Western Hemisphere who are seeking UN acceptance to attend and participate in activities put on for :”Indigenous Peoples”. Below is:” my personal position” on this issue and it  has nothing to do with the official position of the MWCoC.  It’s  what I have been saying on the radio and in Blogs for years:

“WE ARE NOT DESCENDANTS OF IMMIGRANTS. NOT ONLY WERE OUR ANCESTORS BOUGHT HERE BY FORCE IN CHAINS, IN ORDER TO REMAIN ALIVE THEY HAD TO ACCEPT CRUEL ENSLAVEMENT , WHERE THEY WERE FORCED TO ABANDON ALL PRIOR INDIGENOUS CONNECTIONS. THE “ROOTS” DEPICTION OF HOW KUNTA KINTE WAS SEASONED DEMONSTRATES IT ALL.

THEREFORE, JUST AS THE MONGOLIAN “LANDBRIDGE” IMMIGRANT/DESCENDANTS HAVE BEEN DESIGNATED AS “INDIGENOUS” BECAUSE THEY WERE HERE “FIRST” BEFORE THEIR COLONIZERS. WE AS DESCENDANTS  MUST ALSO BE DESIGNATED AS “INDIGENOUS… BECAUSE WE WERE “FORCED” TO COME HERE AND ABANDON ALL PRIOR “INDIGENOUS CONNECTIONS”.

In my poem “MAMA AMERICA” , I say : ” MAMA  AMERICA” …”Africa is grandma NOW”!

Who does the UN say is Indigenous ?  “Who are Indigenous Peoples?Understanding the term “indigenous”
Considering the diversity of indigenous peoples, an official definition of “indigenous” has not been adopted by
any UN-system body. Instead the system has developed a modern understanding of this term based on the
following:
• Self- identification as indigenous peoples at the individual level and accepted by the community as their
member.
• Historical continuity with pre-colonial and/or pre-settler societies
• Strong link to territories and surrounding natural resources
• Distinct social, economic or political systems
• Distinct language, culture and beliefs
• Form non-dominant groups of society
• Resolve to maintain and reproduce their ancestral environments and systems as distinctive peoples and
communities.
A question of identity • According to the UN the most fruitful approach is to identify, rather than define indigenous peoples.
This is based on the fundamental criterion of self-identification as underlined in a number of human
rights documents.
