      Indigenous Status and African American Reparations


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      African Diasporic Reparations Tribunal








      By Dr. Mustafa Ansari



      International law says that indigenous status is
      proper when a group of people establish an
      historical continuity' with the land.
      In 1989 the findings and consensus of the states
      concluded that " Indigenous people are "first
      peoples", tribal peoples, aboriginals and
      autochthons by way of a 5-point analysis, not fully
      agreed upon by a number of Tribes and states.
      a) Common ancestry with the original occupants of
      these lands;
      b) Culture in general, or in specific manifestations
      (such as religion, living under a tribal system,
      membership of an indigenous community, dress, means
      of livelihood, lifestyle, etc.)
      c) Language;
      d) Residence in certain parts of the country, or in
      certain regions of the world;
      e) Other relevant factors
      The 5-point criterion of the Sub commission means
      that historical, archaeological, linguistic and
      genealogical tracings have developed the evidences
      of an American "autochthon" and "aboriginal"
      identity. This means that the appropriate remedy for
      the African American is a uniquely fitted African
      and American indigenous dual status, restitutionary
      land rights, psychological and physical
      rehabilitation were appropriate, genocide and wage
      compensation[s]
      Accordingly, the Indigenous African-American
      Tribunal posits this question to the slave
      descendants in the form of a plebiscite *in order
      for them to determine their rights to indigenous
      land within the borders of present day America.
      We do so forthwithly because historical,
      anthropological, paleontological and archeological
      research has afforded us irrefutable evidence
      arrived in America in three waves in the Americas
      11, 500 to 25 thousand years prior to the arrival of
      Columbus, and that the fourth population wave [The
      Trans-Atlantic gendocide] has given us an accrued
      autochthon indigenous land rights during the slavery
      transmutations of thousands of our African and
      Afro-Indian tribes.





      The findings of the Sub commission laid down a 5-point indigenous analysis:



      a) Common ancestry with the original occupants of these lands;
      b) Culture in general, or in specific manifestations (such as religion, living under a tribal system, membership of an indigenous community, dress, means of livelihood, lifestyle, etc.)
      c) Language;
      d) Residence in certain parts of the country, or in certain regions of the world;
      e) Other relevant factors
      The 5-point criterion of the Sub commission means that historical, archaeological, linguistic and genealogical tracings develop the evidences of an American "autochthon" and "aboriginal" identity. It is these combinations of factors, which are necessary to trigger the international rationale for restitution, rehabilitation, compensation and indigenous land rights under the reparative analysis.

      Accordingly, the Indigenous African-American Tribunal posits this question to the slave descendants in the form of a plebiscite in order for them to determine their rights to indigenous land within the borders of present day America.

      We do so forthwithly because historical, anthropological, paleontological and archeological research has afforded us irrefutable evidence that the Africans sailed to the Americas and continuously lived in the Americas 11, 500 to 25 thousand years prior to the arrival of Columbus, and are arguably aboriginal to the land now know as the United States, and most certainly have accrued autochthon indigenous land rights because of the transmutations during the slavery period.



      African Americans


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



      The selling of our African ancestors did not deprive them of their "Africaness", or their right of return of their land and rights and we should not be deprived of what our grandparents accrued in the Americas before, during, and after the white man came.

      Everyone has a land of their own and we have two says the Tribunal. We are entitled to the estate of our African grandfather and the wages and land of our African American grandfathers




      The original American was an African who walked and rode the tides to America. See the discovery of the earliest ancestor called "Luzia".



      We came to America from East Africa, South Africa, Australia and West Africa over many millennia and we make up many Indian, and African tribes in South and North America. During the slave trade the Africans in America were mixed with over 500 African tribes, 300 Indian tribes as well as the Europeans. slavery



      We are truly African American

      The Legal Basis
      (a) The UN Economic and Social Council's
      Human Rights Committee of the 56th Session
      Victim Reparations Guideline[April 2000]
      Paragraph 22 gives us the right to have a
      recognized Indigenous status,
      and settlement development in America and
      in Africa, and monetary and
      rehabilitation compensations from the
      offending European and African states.
      b) World Convention against Racism

      Really? That is wonderful! He and I are to be married later this year in a royal ceremony filled with pomp, circumstance, culture and tradition in West Afrika!

      He has been appointed Special Minister of Diasporic Foreign Affairs by the Traditional Rulers in Afrika. He is an awesome brother, a gifted man, talented attorney and activist par excellence and I could not do this job as well as I do without him, Dr. Valentine Ojo, my chief of Protocol in the United States, Dr. Nikitah Imani, Angela Molette, Iya Oshundele (goddess IsIs) Chief Obalumi Ogunseye, Baba Sekou Olayinka, Iyalode Ibiyemi, Brother Rad Dockery, Sister Leonna Brandao, Brother Tijuan Muhammad, Dan Fodio, Dr. Abass and Chief Elder Osiris, among others.

      I hope to have the chance to work with you as well!
