A CURE FOR “BLACK INDENTITY EXTREMISM”:GRANT AFRICAN-AMERICANS “INDIGENOUS PEOPLES STATUS” SAYS FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

“The United Nations has issued a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) to guide member-state national policies to the collective rights of indigenous people, such as culture, identity, language and access to employment, health, education and natural resources. Estimates put the total population of indigenous peoples from 220 million to 350 million”.[

“The UN describes it as setting “an important standard for the treatment of indigenous peoples that will undoubtedly be a significant tool towards eliminating human rights violations against the planet’s 370 million indigenous people and assisting them in combating discrimination andmarginalisation.”

I am an African-Native American and my genealogy and family history has been documented by the Smithsonian Institutions Researchers, my family’s story appears in their book and exhibit ,entitled : “African-Native Americans in the Americas”. It is currently on display at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. on the Mall.

I respectfully, as a Proud American submit my thesis. I appear in the photo above ,(far rt.), I am a non-veteran who was married with children during the Vietnam War. However, I did with a spirit of “What can you do for your country” quit a Civil Service job with full benefits and became a “Soldier in the War on Poverty” being waged by President Johnson’s Administration during the 1960’s. I’m from Watts ,Ca., therefore I returned to the Watts Rebellion Target Area and worked to help re-build my community.

For the last fourteen years, I have been a member of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers 9th & 10th (horse) Cavalry. It is an Official U.S. Army Unit Association. I am the Bugler who at every meeting plays the National Anthem and for 13 years I have been a member of the Color Guard.

I am and have been for 18 years, since discovering my personal genealogy, A Seminole Maroon Descendant and Activist. I have shed light on the History of America in connection of it’s treatment of Native Americans, Enslaved Africans and African-Americans. I usually don’t attack current administrations (and never when abroad) but I always attack the Founding Fathers and subsequent administrations up to the modern. not contemporary era.

Here is my thesis : ” It is my contention that since African-American’s Ancestors  originally were forced to inhabit America,  essentially brought here  as kidnap victims, having their History, Culture, Language , Genealogy and Indigenosity destroyed, that their Descendants  should be granted “Indigenous Peoples Status” as African-Americans indigenous to the United States.

I am a Private-Sector-Partner for the National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom 1998 Act and I  suggest that every known area where African/African-American Ancestors were Enslaved should be recognized as a Historical Landmark that is registered under the United States Department of the Interior/National Parks Service. The National Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom managed by Diane Miller should be allowed to catalog and classify each site connected with the destruction of African and African-Americans Indigenous Status.

I further contend that since there were “Special Circumstances”, in the 1st degree murder of African-Americans status as Indigenous People that it can only begin to be repaired by finally giving African-Americans a “Special Coming to America” . History has proven that the 13th,14th and 15th amendments provided essential progress but History has also shown us that the “Soul of a People whose sense of belonging has been so utterly destroyed, needs some official sign of true acceptance “. True ,this is only a ceremonial solution, but it gives a “just starting point”  in lieu of therapy without legitimate official recognition.

Honor and Respect,

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

MAROONS AND BLACK INDIANS SEEK U.N. “INDIGENOUS PEOPLES” STATUS , SAYS FIXICO ON CARL NELSON’S SHOW

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

It’s early Saturday morning Oct, 21st,2017, it’s a little after midnight. The world seems to be quietly preparing for a New Day. Let us hope and pray that Peace, Prosperity and Goodwill will Reign Supreme as GOD gives “us” another chance to get it right (smile) Amen.

Yesterday, Friday, on the weekly Open Mic segment of the WOLDC Carl Nelson show, I again called in to share information on current events and give my take on the big picture. Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

” Greetings Bro Carl Hotep, The Black Indian Community of Oklahoma is exploding with Activism for Full Indian Rights, Membership and Citizenship. This is in reaction to the Cherokee Freedmen winning their legal Indian Rights court case , based on the 1866 U.S. Indian Territory Treaty.

The Maroons of the Caribbean also have prepared a declaration requesting that the United Nations grant them “Indigenous Peoples” status to participate in the UN’s Annual Indigenous Conference activities.

It is my contention that since Native Americans originally came here as Asian Pioneers and became Indigenous American Indians who brought a culture with them. Conversely, Enslaved Blacks came here as kidnapped Africans whose Culture was stolen from them by force. They also should have the right to be recognized, through a process of Ethnogenesis as a “New and Indigenous People of the Americas”, with legal and sovereign rights. What do you think about that Brother Carl”. Carl answers:”I agree”. Call ends.

There are countless instances where Blacks in the America’s have had their rights violated with no legal course of action to proceed upon.  In Spanish Florida for example during the Fort Negro Battle and Massacre, Blacks who had established thriving farms for 50 miles along the Appalachicola River had their rightful property destroyed by the the U.S. Gov’t. of that era. This is well documented in numerous records . It should be mentioned that the Ancestors of those victimized land owners were Indigenous to Africa but were torn from their motherland and all of their Indigenous status that,they were attempting to re-established was destroyed again and again. At a minimum the Descendants of people with a record of these travesties being perpetrated against them should be repaired with “Indigenous Status” .

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

THE 1866 U.S. INDIAN TERRITORY TREATY (SEMINOLES)

Tabled Discussion of Treaties Reopens in 1866 at Washington, D.C.
Although the Indian Territory General Council and U.S. Representatives tabled discussions regarding negotiations of separate individualized Treaties and adjourned on September 21, 1865 at Fort Smith, Arkansas, they did so only after successfully effecting a legally binding multi-party Treaty Agreement between the Tribal General Council and U.S. Representatives. They also gathered resolutions repudiating rebel alliances, immediately breaking the legal power of the treaties that the Confederate Factions of Indian Nations entered earlier with the confederacy.
Tribal Factions remaining Loyal and Faithful to the Union throughout the conflict, in stern moral disagreement with Slavery, were now at the helm. The agreement also formally ended the war in Indian Territory and commanded peaceful relations between all tribes, with further plans to reconvene and re-enter separate Treaty negotiations at Washington, D.C., six months later (falling within calendar year, 1866).
Delegates, Representatives, Interpreters and Agents for Ethnic Tribal Bands and Freedmen in attendance at the drafting of the 1865 Treaty at Fort Smith, included; Harry Island, interpreter for Creeks, Cow Tom, Robert Johnson and Cesar Bruner.  Cesar Bruner (AKA) Ceasar Bruner was my g-grandfather: Ceasar Bruner is the Maroon Leader for whom the Oklahoma Seminole Nation Freedmen Band is named for.

UNITED NATIONS: MAROONS NEED INDIGENOUS PEOPLES “STATUS”, SAYS MWCoC & FIXICO ON CARL NELSON’S SHOW

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

May the Good Lord Bless and Keep you all.  In Southern California the weather is mild this evening on Friday October 6th, 2017. We must pray for the world and prepare it with good intentions for the future generations.

My call on Mr. Carl Nelson’s show this “FREEDOM FRIDAY” is featured in a transcript below:

” Greetings Brother Carl ! Thank you for your guest Dr. James Small this week. It was a rare treat to be able to mention the “MERIKINS” of Trinidad, who were African-Americans that won their freedom and went to the Caribbean”.

“Brother Carl you and I have been invited to Suriname, South America to celebrate their National Maroon Day and to attend an International Maroon Workshop. We were invited by the Maroon Women Chamber of Cooperation, a group that I am the North American Maroon Representative of. I was a bit slow in the reporting of the invitation due to unforeseeable circumstances, so, I guess we will consider doing it next year.

It is an extremely important workshop that will discuss :  THE DECLARATION OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES STATUS for the MAROONS of the WESTERN HEMISPHERE. What will be discussed is “the fact that Maroons have existed in the Americas alongside and in some cases intermarrying with the first Maroons the Indigenous People”. The Maroons want the United Nations to grant them Indigenous Peoples Status for participation in the UN’s Annual  Indigenous Peoples Conference” The call ends.

Three of the MWCoC leaders who will attend the workshop are Jamiaca’s  Grand Gaama and Paramount Chief Gloria Mama “G” Simms, Trinidad and Tobago’s Maroon Representative Ms. Akilah Jaramogi and representing Suriname’s Maroons will be MWCoC President Dr. Cynthia Alendy and Her Excellency Dr. Ambassador Fidelia Graand-Galon.

Honor and Respect, Phil Da Pompey Fixico, Seminole Maroon Descendant and North American Maroon Representative to the MWCoC

 

 

 

NATIONAL ANTHEM CONTROVERSY, “FORT NEGRO MASSACRE”,CARL NELSON’S BIG SHOW AND SEMINOLE MAROON ACTIVIST FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Greetings to all who dwell upon GOD”S Earth. Today is October 5th , 2017 in the year of our Lord. It is our custom to pause and pray for  and to send heartfelt condolences out to the victims and to the survivors of Life as we know it here on the third planet in our tiny solar system. It’s early morning in Southern California.

Yesterday, on Carl Nelson’s WOLDC Radio “POWER TALKER” Professor James Small was being interviewed . Callers and the guest were speaking about The National Anthem Controversy. Below is a”PARAPHRASED” version of my call.

“Greetings Brother Carl and Professor Small, I am the author of the article : “COLIN KAEPERNICK, DICK GREGORY AND THE National Anthem Controversy is connected to the “Fort Negro” Massacre”. The connection between the Fort Negro Massacre and the National Anthem is that Francis Scott Key the author of the “Star Spangled Banner” was a Lieutenant of the American militia unit that was assigned to guard the Bladensberg road that led to Washington DC. His unit broke and ran when they were attacked by British forces that included Black troops who were members of the Corp of Colonial Marines.

There were two units of the Black Corp of Colonial Marines, one from the Chesapeake area and a another one recruited and trained at “Fort Negro” in the Gulf area. I am related to one of the members of the “Fort Negro” group . After the British lost the War they lived up to their promise to the Corp of Colonial Marines to either free them or take them to one of their Colonies in the Caribbean. Many of the Corp of Marine Veterans went to Trinidad and formed the “5 Company Villages of Maroons” there on the Island and their Descendants are still there today.

Another portion of the unit with their family and friends elected to remain in Florida taking advantage of Spanish Florida’s Asylum from Slavery. they remained in and around “Fort Negro”. The British had left the fort fully stocked with military equipment .  Fort Negro became a beacon of hope for enslaved Blacks in the U.S. and they began escaping into Florida to what they thought was the safety of “Fort Negro”.

However, James Madison the slave owning U.S. President viewed this situation as a threat to the US Slave Empire. Therefore, President in collusion with General Andrew Jackson decided to violate Spanish Territory to: ” destroy the negro fort and return the stolen property and Negros to the rightful owners”. ( I believe that it added to President Madison’s venom to know that the fort was left in the hands of same Black British Colonial Corp of Marine members who had helped Burn the public buildings in Washington including his residence.

An American force was sent that included elements of the Army ,Navy and Marine Corp. They surrounded the fort and demanded  that the occupants surrender. They refused and “Fought to the Death”. The attacking US force even with the aide of Indian Allies were unable to breach the wall. they eventually fired a heated cannonball that landed in the fort’s stockpile. It set off an explosion that could be heard over 100 miles away . It killed 270 defenders instantly 200 were Black women and children. The other 70 maroon defenders were a few Seminole and Choctaw Indians”. My call ends.

So in firing of one cannonball President Madison and General Jackson had put and end to the threat of “Fort Negro” as a sanctuary  for escaping Blacks and they had gotten even with some of the remaining members of the Black British Colonial Corp of Marines.

Surprisingly, in 2016, I was contacted by Ms. Rhonda Kimbrough of the U.S. Forest Service that is assigned to maintain Fort Gadsden, as it is called by the government. I was informed that the USFS intended to conduct a 200th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of the Negro Fort. I was also, told that I could take part in the planning and attend the ceremony. This for me it was the culmination of 17 years of Research, Discovery and Activism. I would also be able to perform the “Seminole Maroon Peace Belt Ceremony” for all and to represent the Maroon Victims of the Battle and Massacre of the Negro Fort.

There is a link below of the actual Commemoration (my ceremony begins 50 min. into the video)

I am also the Bugler, which means I play the National Anthem and I honor the American not for the dark side of African-American’s History here in the USA but for the investment that we have made in this country and for the progress that we have earned through our hard work, sacrifice and BLOOD,SWEAT AND TEARS. I don’t think that we should leave that on the table.

5 CIVILIZED TRIBES, “BLACK SLAVES, RED MASTERS”, CARL NELSON WOLDC AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

It’s Friday a bit after 9:00 pm on the West Coast, it seems like the whole world has paused to take a breather after  much upheaval and dislocation. Yet, I know in reality, it only seems that way here in Southern California …for right now. We continue to pray for those less fortunate  souls around the world struggling to survive.

Earlier today, I called into the Carl Nelson WOLDC Radio Show, broadcasting from Washington DC.  Why ? Because it’s “Radio Free Friday”. Below is a transcript of my call:

“Greetings Brother Carl , concerning the film, “BLACK SLAVES, RED MASTERS”, I’m a Seminole Maroon Descendant and Activist featured in the Smithsonian Institution’s book and exhibit, entitled: “indiVisible”. The subject came up this week on your show concerning the “Civilized Tribes”and what it meant. I’d like to explain it from my years of research. After the Revolutionary War, the question arose on :”What to do with the Indians”?

This was discussed by George Washington, Charles Knox and Thomas Jefferson. It was decided that a military solution would be too expensive. So , they created a “Civilization Program” within the War Department. The program would encourage the Indians to , stop hunting hunting and begin European style farming, including the use of Slavery.

The first Indian Agent used to train them, was Benjamin Hawkins. He was a direct Descendant of Sir John Hawkins who was the “Father of the TransAtlanticSlave trade. They were serious about implementing Slavery into their “Civilization Program”.

Part 2 of the Indian Strategy was , since the Indians held Land in Common, they wouldn’t sell their “Mother Earth”. Therefore, Thomas Jefferson came up with the idea to use Gov’t Trading Houses to allow Indians as much credit as they wanted and when they became deep in debt they could pay it off with their land”. Carl said: ” Thanks, Fixico, this gives me a chance to remind the audience that the film “BLACK SLAVES, RED MASTERS” will air locally this Saturday ,hosted by Channel 7 reporter Mr. Sam Ford “. Call ends.

Honor and Respect, Phil “Pompey Bruner” Fixico, Seminole Maroon Descendant and Activist
