HOLLYWOOD’S AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE, the film “BY BLOOD” and Fort Negro’s FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Hello everybody, it’s June 14th, 2017. GOD IS STILL GOOD and GREATLY TO BE PRAISED’. As I sit here in Southern California, it’s a beautiful day, not just because the weather is 10+ on a scale of 10 but because of the wonderful invitation that I  have received from the Black Association of Black Film makers-West. I have known about this prestigious Association of Black Film makers for some time. I even a few years ago attended one of their meetings. However, I never imagined that I would one day be asked  by them to participate at one of their major events as a panelists. An invitation of this magnitude at a world-class industry venue somehow makes all my years of DISCOVERY, RESEARCH and ACTIVISM all worth it.

Below are a few excerpts that explain my feelings of exhilaration:

Dear Mr. Fixico,

The Black Association of Documentary Filmmakers-West invites you to participate as a panel member at our annual “Day of Black Docs” taking place at the American Film Institute on June 24th, 2017 from 12-4 pm.. We are inviting you to be a panel member to discuss the film “By Blood” following it’s screening.”By  Blood” chronicles American Indians of African descent as they battle in court to regain tribal citizenship.

“The American Film Insititute (AFI) is an American film organization that educates filmmakers and honors the heritage of the motion picture arts in the United States”

The photo above was taken in New York City ,New York at the American Hotel in 1852. I call it the “Six Chiefs”. Five of the Indigenous people capyured in this photo are “By Blood” Seminoles and one, the Warrior Chief that is an African-Phenotype, is standing in back on the right. He is Prophet Abraham to the the Black Seminoles, but his Seminole name is Souanaffe Tustenukke (Suwanee Warrior), it is a warrior title designating that he is a Tribal member at the highest level of Seminole Society. This picture proves that Blacks were in the Seminole Tribe as equals and as Tribal Leaders.

I know this to be true because my g-grandfather was Caesar Bruner who was the band Leader of the Oklahoma Seminole Freedmen, a Band that still carries his name today. “Papa” Caesar was married to Prophet Abraham’s  daughter Nancy.  They had 8 children together. however since “Papa” Caesar was a Maroon Leader just like Prophet Abraham they both had a right and a duty to have children outside of their Maroon marriages. For the women who were the mothers of these children by powerful Head Men it insured a social Safety net for their entire families.

My g-grandmother was Dinah Fixico, a Wind Clan, Full-Blood, Mikasuki Seminole Woman # 900 on the Dawes Rolls. Dinah Fixico’s son was Pompey Fixico # 902 was my grandfather. While he was listed as a fullblood in truth he was the son of Maroon Leader Caesar Bruner. Dinah and Caesar’s son  was meant to be an “Anchor Baby” for the Tribe. In other words a mixed  race child that was conceived to strengthen the bond between the Indigenous and Maroon Seminole Peoples. Below an is excerpt taken from , ” Mixed Race in the Seminole Nation”, written by Dr. Kevin Mulroy who is the “World’s Leading expert on Seminole Maroons”:

Dr. Kevin Mulroy

“This is a story of two hidden identities, it focuses on the family history of Phil Wilkes Fixico (aka Philip Vincent Wilkes and Pompey Bruner Fixico), a contemporary Seminole Maroon Descendant of mixed race who lives in Los Angeles. Phil is one-eight Seminole Indian, one-quarter Seminole Freedman, one–eighth Creek Freedman, one-quarter Cherokee-Freedman, and one-quarter African-American-White. His family history records that  his grandfather was the offspring of a seminole Indian woman and a Seminole Freedman, but that this “intermarriage” was kept secret from the Dawes Commission and the boy was enrolled as a Fullblood-Indian”. I look forward to being a panelist at this historic event.

Honor and Respect, Phil “PompeyBruner” Fixico ,Seminole Maroon Descendant and Activist. P.S. Dr. Kevin Mulroy’s book is, entitled: “The Seminole Freedmen” “A History”. for those who are interested in the topic of Black Indians should also read author William L. Katz  book, entitled: “Black Indians” “A Hidden Heritage”.

LEBRON JAMES & REV. JESSE JACKSON, “WHEN THEY HATE US”…”WE LOVE US” SAYS FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Today is June 5th 2017, I’m reaching out from Southern California. Yesterday, on Sunday before  I attended church, I called into Civil Rights  Icon Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Chicago based  national radio show :”KEEP HOPE ALIVE” which is heard on WVON 1690 am.. The topic of the show was about the reactions to Basketball’s Great player Mr. Lebron James’ home being vandalized with the N-word. Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

” Greetings Rev. Jackson, Sister Santita and guest.  We do have an Emergency Plan: “WHEN THEY HATE US”… “WE LOVE US”… We should use the power of LOVE. As a people, it’s time for a “GRASSROOTS CULTURAL RENAISSANCE” similar to the Harlem Renaissance except instead of using the “NEW NEGRO” as our role model we us African-American, Maroon and Indigenous Freedom Fighters as our new role models, and re-tell Western Hemisphere History through their struggles.

It must be an All-inclusive movement ,we need others to participate. Dr. King advocated for LOVE and this suggestion is just a creative use of LOVE. “WHEN THEY HATE US”…”WE LOVE US”. Remember, it was a Conservative Grassroots Cultural Movement that put this administration into power”. Call ends.

We are holding a copy of “BLACK INDIANS” A HIDDEN HISTORY by WILLIAM L. KATZ. I’d also like to thank my dear friend and great Mentor Dr. Kevin Mulroy, the author of “THE SEMINOLE FREEDMEN” A HISTORY, for all his important contributions to the Cause.

IVANKA TRUMP KUSHNER VS. MICHELLE OBAMA FOR POTUS IN 2020 SAYS FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH !!

Today is Tuesday May 23rd, 2017, here in Los Angeles, California, it’s 2:00 AM PST. You heard it right Ladies and Gentlemen, this town, this state and this country are ready for an epic championship bout between First Daughter Ms. Ivanka Trump Kushner vs. Former First Lady Ms. Michelle Obama. The Marquess of Queensberry Rules will be observed as these two beautiful and CLASSY COMBATANTS show the other guys and girls “HOW TO DO IT”.

In the Republican RED Corner we have Ivanka Trump Kushner a wife, mother, Businesswoman and Fashion Model vs. Michelle Obama, also a wife, mother, Lawyer and Fashion Setter in the Democratic BLUE Corner. They both have a White House connection.  Ivanka Trump Kushner is in current possession of the “Rose Garden, West Wing and everything else in between”, thanks to “Papa” Donald Trump the current POTUS. However, Michelle Obama had a very lengthy tenure there, with her “Hubby” Barack Obama and family.

So why attempt a sequel with a change in starring roles. It’s never been done in Hollywood like that. Well, maybe, that’s why we need to do it in Washington, D.C. at 1600 Pennsylvania, Avenue. Write a new script with a twist and a Happy Ending.  “AFTER-ALL WHAT DO WE HAVE TO LOSE” !

Honestly Folks, the Free World is ready for some Professional Leadership that includes the Maternal Instinct and Unconditional Love. If that sounds “Corny”, how about the fact that, it’s time for the  Girls to have some FUN. They really are overdue for their turn to drive. The efforts of Former Governor Sarah Palin and Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have proven that there is a strong political base for a Woman POTUS.

Congratulations to Her Excellency the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador Dr. Fidelia Graand -Galon from Suriname. For some years her diplomatic post was to Trinidad and Tobago the wealthiest country in the Caribbean. It is also the third richest country in the Americas behind the United States and Canada.

Honor and Respect, SUPREME GRAND GAAMA AMBASSADOR your Excellency Dr. Fidelia Graand-Galon EEIYA GADU BUN m’pikin sisa Gaatangi fu yu !!!

The Western Hemisphere Cultural Renaissance is a “NEW” Cultural Renaissance similar to the Harlem Renaissance except instead of using the “New Negro” as the Cultural hero, this renaissance will use Indigenous and Maroon Freedom Fighters as it’s role model Heroes and Sheroes. It’s aim is to re-tell Western Hemisphere through their lives  with truth and dignity, telling how they survived and triumphed during :Discovery,Colonization,  the TransAtlanticSlave Trade, Indian Removal, Civil Wars, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and the fight for Civil Rights. This “New” Cultural Renaissance will be “All-Inclusive” everyone is welcomed to participate in it’s celebration of historic victories and achievements. The vehicle  of expression will be the Humanities and any other positive creative tool capable of helping us, the Descendants at last have our “Emotional Coming to the Americas”.

Their will be many other notifications of newly appointed Ambassadors from all over the Western Hemisphere. This is a “GRASSROOTS” movement and Ambassadors will come from all quarters, all races, colors and creeds .

OKLAHOMA VERDICTS, THE CARL NELSON SHOW, & FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

The decision in the Oklahoma Police Officer Betty Shelby Manslaughter case was recently announced. As many in the Black Community had expected it was this, that the jury finds White police woman Betty Shelby, “Not Guilty” of the death of an unarmed,  Black motorist named Terence Crutcher.

Yesterday, May 19th, 2017, I was listening to the WOLDC 1450 AM radio show, hosted by the Award winning host Mr. Carl Nelson. Yes, it was “Open Phones” Friday and several of the callers were voicing their outrage over the verdict. I had intended to call in about America’s never-ending Political Saga, starring President Donald Trump and Company. However, my family has an Oklahoma legal battle in our History. Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl, My grandfather Pompey Fixico was unarmed when he was murdered in front of witnesses in 1925, in Wewoka,Oklahoma 85 miles from Tulsa. This was 3 years after the Tulsa Race Riots. He was a Veteran of WW 1 where he served in France in the “Buffalo” Div.. Prior to being drafted he worked in Tulsa at the Brady Hotel which was owned by Tate Brady a high ranking Ku Klux Klan official. My grandfather on the Dawes Rolls was listed as a Full-Blooded Mikasuki Seminole. In truth his biological father was Seminole Maroon Leader Caesar Bruner, who had  at the end of the Civil War helped translate the 1865 Truce that became the 1866 Treaty that Dr. Claud Anderson talks about. When my grandfather was shot there were two doctors on the scene and neither one would treat him. Even though there were 4 witnesses who testified the judge ruled that there was “no evidence” that a crime had been committed.

My grandmother and the children ,including my father  were to be exterminated, so they fled from Oklahoma”.

Carl Nelson after the Traffic Update, said: “Fixico you seem to know a lot about your family’s information, how do you know all this”.

My answer: ” I didn’t know any of this until I was 52 years old, after finding out I began my Activism. I don’t work for money, I work for the PROGRESS of the information.  One other thing is the story of what happened to the Black Indians of Oklahoma needs to be told. Many of them had property on land that was over a lake of Oil called the Wilcox -Sand Oil Deposit”

Mr. Carl Nelson “Your story is very interesting and you need to keep telling it”

My answer: “Thank you and Ms. Cathy Hughes , for allowing us to tell our story”.  Call ends.

Honor and Respect, Phil “Pompey” Bruner Fixico, Seminole Maroon Descendant and Private-Sector–Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act.

DIANE MILLER, NUGRR/MGR., “HARRIET TUBMAN VISITOR’S CENTER”, CARL NELSON AND FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Good morning, today is May 10th, 2017, yesterday on the WOLDC Radio-One Carl Nelson Show, I enjoyed the absolutely wonderful experience of listening to Mr. Nelson (arguably “America’s #1 Black Talk Show Host”) interview Ms. Diane Miller the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom’s Manager and the New Harriet Tubman Visitor Center ‘s Superintendent. It was a classic example of how a professional Journalist/host interacts with an extremely knowledgeably guest. The callers were lighting up the phone banks at Cathy Hughes Radio Station and the accomplished National Manager Diane Miller was answering their sincere questions, proficiently and adding interesting details.

I was deliriously happy for and proud of both of these awe-inspiring personalities whom I deeply respect and admire. The topic was about the upcoming National Underground Railroad /Network to Freedom’s upcoming  exciting Annual Conference entitled: “On the Edge of Freedom”, to be held in Cambridge, Maryland from May 18th, to May 21st. Check the link below for details. I was happy for Mr. Carl Nelson because of the generous manner in which he has pursued his career for years as an award winning Talk Show Host and I felt the same about NUGRR Program Manager Ms. Diane Miller , I have a professional history with Ms. Miller .

In 2012, I was one of 11 “VIP”  Descendants who were chosen and featured, in that year’s NUGRR Annual Conference that was dedicated to the Black Seminole and Gullah Geechee of the Western Hemisphere, held in St. Augustine, Florida. I had been recommened by Dr. Kevin Mulroy, Author of :” FREEDOM ON THE BORDER” and “THE SEMINOLE FREEDMEN”. What an incredible  life-changing experience. As a result of my taking part in that memorable event, I became a Private-Sector-Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act and have been active in my capacity as a Partner since that Time. I also, called into Carl’s show during the interview to make a comment. Below is a transcript of my brief call:

“Greetings, Brother Carl and Diane Miller. Thank you, so much for doing this interview. I’m a Private-Sector-Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act. There is actually a Public Law that says these stories must be told. Diane is my “FEARLESS LEADER” and she  does a tremendous job ! So, I hope that the community comes out to support the program” Call ends.
