As It Was In The Beginning
This phase of my journey began approximately almost five years ago. I received a friend request from a brother named Tecumseh Brown Eagle, The Chief of The Erie Mound Builders. After accepting his request, I soon realized that this was no ordinary request and that he was no ordinary man. He was, as he is now, a wealth of knowledge. Chief Tecumseh and I really hit it off, especially when we realized that we were both martial artists. But it was his knowledge of Native American history that grabbed me. After listening to him share our true Native American history, it caused me to wonder about my own. I discovered that my great grand-mother is listed on one of the census reports as Cherokee. It was history about my family I never knew. We continued to have more discussions about the subject, and then one day he asked me, "Why don’t you start your own tribe?". I gave it some thought, but I didn’t know what to call it until one day, it occurred to me that The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Messenger of Allah being taught by Allah in the person of Master Fard Muhammad, taught us that we, the black man and black woman here in the wilderness of North America, were members of the Original Tribe. He said we are descendants of The Tribe of Shabazz.
The Tribe of Shabazz is the name of the tribe that settled on this part that we now call earth after
the deportation of what we now call the moon 66 trillion years ago. This knowledge (TRUTH)
was not known until the coming of a man. A man who came to fulfill the ultimate prophecy. This man, Master Fard Muhammad, came to North America by himself to reclaim the lost members of The Tribe of Shabazz. Master Fard Muhammad was in and out of North America for twenty years before he made his presence known to the Black people (Indigenous) of North America in what was then called “Black Bottom Detroit”. It was July 4, 1930, when he began teaching our people (Indigenous) here about a history they had never heard before. One of the things that had to be done was to give Black people (Indigenous) an identity that would uplift them provide them with pride and love for themselves. He taught them that the black man and black woman in the wilderness of North America were direct descendants of a Royal Family. This Royal Family's name was The Tribe of Shabazz. He taught that a member of the Tribe of Shabazz left the Root of Civilization on a mission that was then called “The Jungles of East Asia". We now call it Africa. He said that we are The Original People of The Planet Earth, The Makers, The Owners, and The Cream of The Planet Earth. In this declaration, it contains the word original. Original means first. If we are The Original Man and Woman, which means first, then we are the oldest people on the planet. It doesn’t matter what names we go by today because there are many. We are all direct descendants of the first Tribe, The Tribe of Shabazz.
Sixty-six trillion years ago is a very long time to hold on to a name. It’s not hard for wise men and women to understand this fact. When people are given the freedom to choose, they do just that. They decide where they want to live and name these places whatever represents them. They give names based on circumstances, territory, and the surrounding animals. So, The Tribe of Shabazz is a name that got lost in the shuffle of time until the coming of “Allah” in the person being Master Fard Muhammad. The date of this writing is April 2021. It is my belief that the time has come to reclaim our birthright under the name that started it all. I recently discovered that the United Nations recognized The Washitaw de Dugdamoundyah Muur Nation in Louisiana as the oldest people on our planet. They have made clear in their writings that they are descendants of The Original Tribe, “The Tribe of Shabazz”. When I started on this assignment three years ago, I had no knowledge of the Washitaw Nation and the work that was done by Her Highest Empress Verdiacee Washitaw. The Empress did an extremely valuable job of proving the history of her tribe and how it linked to the Tribe of Shabazz. I have no formal education past the twelfth grade, so I had a big stumbling block to overcome when I started doing my research. I’m not what you would call a historian. I am a follower of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. While trying to find a way to prove my Native American heritage and looking for a way to connect it to a Native American tribe, the thought occurred that I didn't have to do that. Why? The Honorable Elijah Muhammad already gave us the name of the tribe we belong to. So, it was at that moment I decided to restore The Tribe of Shabazz to a recognized and functioning Independent Sovereign Nation in North America. I didn’t know how I would do it, but I felt strongly that this was my new assignment.
The first thing I did was research some of the tribes that are federally recognized. I saw that they all had a seal and a flag. I immediately began working on a seal and a flag. It didn’t take me long to design both of them. After doing this, I realized that at some point, I might have to prove my findings. At that point, I felt overwhelmed, so I put it down to focus on my health. I never gave up on my assignment, but I had to start taking care of myself. In March 2021, I read something in a book called “The Brown Book” by Prophet Noble Drew Ali. It led me to find the information on the Washitaw. I read that the United Nations declared The Washitaw Nation the oldest people on our planet, and they were registered as such with a registry number. This registry number meant that The Washitaw would be known all over the world. In their writings, they have made it very clear that they are, in fact, the offspring or extension of the ancient and Royal Family we know today as The Tribe of Shabazz. So, on this day, July 4, 2021, I, Nasiir Abdul Muhammad, under the direction of Allah, who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad and his Christ the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, decreed that The Original Indigenous Tribe, The Royal and Ancient Family is known today as The Tribe of Shabazz is hereby restored as a legitimate indigenous Native Tribe located here in the wilderness of North America and all over the planet earth.
