98% of African Americans Are In Fact Native Indians And Are Owed Millions 

Indigenous Aboriginal American Woman

The tens of millions of Black Americans, or rather Indians, who ‘disappeared’ after 1492 did not all die in the ‘holocaust’ inflicted within America. Hundreds of thousands were shipped to Europe and Africa as Indian slaves. The whole slave trade story was given to all of us in reverse. A mass colony of Africans were not shipped from Africa to America. The truth is that Black Indians were shipped from America to Europe! They were then shipped from Spain to Africa as commodity for African resources. These Black Indians, now mistaken as African Americans, were shipped back to America and classified as “African Slaves.” This part of our history is what the school systems fail to mention in history programs.

Every European nation that colonized North America utilized Indian slaves for construction, plantations and mining on the North American continent but more frequently in their outposts in the Caribbean and in the metropolis of Europe.

All historians note that nowhere is there more authentic documentation than in South Carolina, also known as the original English colony of Carolina, established in 1670. It is estimated that between 1650 and 1730 at least 50,000 Indians (and likely more due to transactions hidden to avoid paying government tariffs and taxes) were exported by the English alone to their Caribbean outposts.

Between 1670 and 1717 far more Indians were exported than Africans were imported. In southern coastal regions entire tribes were exterminated through slavery compared to disease or war. In a law passed in 1704, Indian slaves were conscripted to fight in wars for the colony long before the American Revolution.

Brief Indian Slavery Complexity

Indians found themselves caught in between colonial strategies for power and economic control. The fur trade in the Northeast, the English plantation system in the south and the Spanish mission system in Florida collided with major disruptions to Indian communities.

Indians displaced from the fur trade in the north migrated south where plantation owners armed them to hunt for slaves living in the Spanish mission communities. The French, the English and Spanish often capitalized on the slave trade in other ways; for example they garnered diplomatic favor when they negotiated the freedom of slaves in exchange for peace, friendship and military alliance.

In another instance of Indian and colonial complicity in the slave trade, the British had established ties with the Chickasaw who were surrounded by enemies on all sides in Georgia. They conducted extensive slave raids in the lower Mississippi Valley where the French had a foothold, which they sold to the English as a way to reduce Indian populations and keep the French from arming them first. Ironically, the English also saw it as a more effective way to “civilize” them compared to the efforts of the French missionaries.

The Extent of the Indian Slave Trade 

The Indian slave trade covered an area from as far west and south as New Mexico (then Spanish territory) northward to the Great Lakes. Historians believe that all tribes in this vast swath of land were caught up in the slave trade in one way or another, either as captives or as traders. Slavery was part of the larger strategy to depopulate the land to make way for European settlers.

As early as 1636 after the Pequot war in which 300 Pequots were massacred, those who remained were sold into slavery and sent to Bermuda. Major slaving ports included Boston, Salem, Mobile and New Orleans. From those ports Indians were shipped to Barbados by the English, Martinique and Guadalupe by the French and the Antilles by the Dutch. Indian slaves were also sent to the Bahamas as the “breaking grounds” where they might have been transported back to New York or Antigua.

The historical record indicates a perception that Indians did not make good slaves. When they weren’t shipped far from their home territories they too easily escaped and were given refuge by other Indians if not in their own communities. They died in high numbers on the transatlantic journeys and succumbed easily to European diseases. By 1676 Barbados had banned Indian slavery citing “too bloody and dangerous an inclination to remain here.”

Obscured Identities of Native Indians 

As the Indian slave trade gave way to the African slave trade by the late 1700’s (by then over 300 years old) Native American women began to intermarry with imported Africans, producing mixed-race offspring whose native identities became obscured through time. In the colonial project to eliminate the landscape of Indians, these mixed-race people simply became known as “colored” people through bureaucratic erasure in public records.

In some cases such as in Virginia, even when people were designated as Indians on birth or death certificates or other public records, their records were changed to reflect “colored.” Census takers, determining a person’s race by their looks, often recorded mixed-race people as simply black, not Indian.

Indigenous Aboriginal American Family

The result is that today there is a population of people of Native American heritage and identity (particularly in the Northeast) who are not recognized by society at large, sharing similar circumstances with the Freedmen of the Cherokee and other Five Civilized Tribes as documented on the Dawes Roll cards by the United States Dawes Roll Administration.

Native American Indian Tribes have been awarded nearly a billion dollars in a historical settlement in early September 2015. 645 Native American Tribes won settlements against The U.S. Department of Justice, totaling in the amount of $940 million dollars.

The United States Government was very fearful that more Native Indians (also known as ‘Colored’, ‘Negro’, ‘Black’ or blank, meaning no race mentioned, on their birth certificates) will discover their true history and bloodline heritage, and that they will be forced to grant them all reparations and land.

So the US silently declared a deadline of December 31st 2014, for those people to make land claims and identity claims. Even though the deadline has passed, there are thousands of Native Indians still winning settlements through the US Supreme Court and most commonly through the United Nations courts. So DO NOT give up your fight, because where there’s a will, there is a way!

        Do not depend on DNA tests to tell you the truth. They are carried out by those who have oppressed us historically and still today. They will not tell you the truth and will link you to Africa in order to give life to their bs propaganda. The indigenous Americans (not so-called Native Americans) are black americans. When they test you for DNA, they'd check to see if you have Mongoloid blood and honestly, I'd suggest researching because DNA tests are scams anyway. The most they can do is tell you who your father and mother are.

      After extensive research on, I found my paternal grandmother, great-grandmother, etc all to be "Cherokee ", in the late 1800's and several times in the early 1900's they tried to register on the the Dawes for their American Indian heritage but was denied many times, what can I do now, their is definitely proof, pictures, etc, showing where they lived, what their slave master wrote down, etc....

      My family is Blackfoot Indian stemming for the Carolinas. The Blackfoot tribe is actually a group of tribes that joined together for protection from slave trading

  • Shannon Russell

    So, This explains why some of our native features are so prevalent. In fact, "WE ARE" Afrikan and Native American! I watched genealogy shows that told people that they're 98% Sub-Saharan and non native amer. because DNA was traced back to a certain tribe or area. That statement has crushed some even more because either the company doesn't know this history or just refuses to admit the 1 and only truth. Smdh. I, for one, am ecstatic to get more confirmation on what I've been told all along!! Thank You!!!!

      I have been spending time investigating my family history. We have taken DNA from mind mother and found out we have quite of bit of Indian blood. I have found mind forth generation grandfather. His name was waka or English language walker. Catherine was the name as well as mind alice was used throughout generation and mind family always knew we were Abraham. As I research my family on mind own. I found we have own a airport and a cemetery located in Greenville South Carolina. Where mind mother mother side of the family was regenerated. We do have our state recognizing but not our federal just yet. Now I have remarried and mind new husband mother in law lived to be over 90 odds years old told me that she was Cherokee ascendant as well. Mind work isn't done by no means of the word. Mind church in which I attended also helps with mind ancestry. They only can verified four generation well as I have found over nine generation. I would need more insistence on mind finding I already sent information to north Carolina and they inform me that we wasn't on their charts that I have to go through Oklahoma because they have several more tribes than them...thank you for this information and I will search more for having more finding concerning mind family history in order of having it of being known of my family members knowingly there roots.

  • NanaEarth

    Great article! This is definitely a now topic. And the truth shall rise! My research has found that everywhere on this planet the invaders went they recorded that they found people of color. The names Indian, black, colored, Polynesian, melanesian, melanin, and all the other names were given by them, not us, confirming who they found during their travels. They identified those who they wanted to kill off so their people could take over the land and today they have re-named us African Americans so that we will have no claim to the land here, just Africa. In fact, in their quest to "take back their country", they may decide to call those who have accepted the tag of African Americans immigrants and try to send them back to Africa. Even those of us who have done DNA testing that claims to trace you back to Africa does not exclude you from being from this land originally due to movement of our people back and forth on the planet. DNA testing which is their so-called science, was invented to convince people of color that they were not from this land but from somewhere else. Testing has become a real farce, now they are telling people of color that they are European and many other mixtures confusing the whole issue, but taking away the land claim. Fact is the whole planet was populated by people of color and we have been wiped out in the billions so that the ones with no color could take over the planet as they are gradually doing. Claim the whole thing people of color, it is yours! Send them back to wherever they came from, they are the invaders!

    It's crazy because I can not find my identity anywhere. My grandparents were the absolute best anyone could ask for. My grandma was a very private person and never mentioned her childhood. And WATS even crazier is no one noes there maiden name. My grand dad on the other hand was a rambler he always would laugh a hearty laugh remembering his child hood wit siblings and his mom but the names were nicknames. Remembering my grandma would always say no matter where we go we will always b put on the back burner because we r Glovers. Sometimes I get scared because I dnt noe my own identity. My mom never gave up names either everybody was referred to as momma aunty grandma or sister. I've lost so much money on ancestry .com mylife archives and so many more. I am a lost soul and crying out for help geechi and Blackfoot is Wat I here from grandfather. My mom Indian and Creole.

    IMO looking at DNA studies and people around the world, there are African Americans who have similar mutations as others like people of Mauritius and reunion island and Madagascar. They have similar origins as America in the way they started. It makes sense that we were being taken from Africa. Indians here were same as those over there, difference is that most west Indians were dark. But to your point, I think black type people were all over first and something significant happened that produce the current population of Europe and asia that wiped out black/asia and Europe in prehistory

      I am a Harris from Virginia and have traced back a slave and she was listed as mulatto. We do have Indian blood. Not sure the tribe though. However, I suppose she had children with a white man because my family has native American /white features.

      • Wilbert Harrus

        I am a double Harris, I descend from the Harris families on my paternal and maternal side.Most likely than not , we're distant cousins. The countenances you have described are consistent with my paternal Tuscarouran descent of Virginia. My maternal descent ,historically from North Carolina has a Cherokee admixture. Clearly the admixture of native American bloodline in black families is often understated or simply not acknowledged.

  • Nyiaa Jones

    This is all so interesting I have been told by many in my family we have roots back to the Seminole Indians and East Indians however no one has been able to produce the documentation. Can you please point me in the direction of where I may be able to begin the History of where my roots truly are my great Grandmother was born on a Seminole Indian reservation in Florida back in the 1800's.

  • Lisa Wms

    FYI-There are several forms of DNA test. The $99 test that ancestry uses only test the "maternal" (mothers) bloodline. So if your native lineage comes from your fathers side, you will not get that information from ancestry results. There are other sites that test the fathers lineage but for some reason it cost $250. Just want people to be informed and not mislead.

  • Emily Paige Ealey

  • Irvin Morris

    Wishful thinking, unfortunately. DNA tests are not accepted by most tribal governments when considering enrollment. The tests may show native ancestry yes, but cannot identify a specific tribe. You have to be enrolled in a tribe recognized by the federal government to get any benefits at all. Requirements for enrollment vary. Most require verifiable proof of lineal descent. DNA tests just don't cut it. Don't waste your money! I am Diné (Navajo). My people are going through a period of increased intermarriage and as a result there are more and more Diné who are of mixed ancestry. We are matrilineal, which means descent is traced through the female line. If your mother is Diné so are you. The BIA requires 1/4 lineal descent for enrollment as a Navajo. Generally speaking, at least one of your grandparents must be Diné. A DNA test might be accepted if you're trying to prove parentage (descent from a specific person), but if you're attempting to prove native ancestry in general, well, good luck. DNA testing is notoriously unreliable. Aside from the biology, there is the political implications of what you're proposing. Namely, claiming a share of already scarce resources. Natives have never received adequate compensation or treaty-obligated funds to meet health and education needs. What makes you think that tribes will be willing to share that pittance? While there are probably millions of African-Americans with native blood, it is unlikely that they will ever legally qualify for membership in any tribe. It's not that I don't sympathize; my family comprises several different "racial" groups including African-American. Traditionally, membership was more fluid. People without a drop of Diné blood could be adopted and given a clan identity. At one time we had over 50 clans that included those adopted from other tribal groups. We even have a Mexican clan. African-Americans are known as Naahiłi or Naakai łizhiní. The latter comes from the early days of colonial contact when African-Americans accompanied Spanish expeditions into the Southwest. The name means "Black Spaniards." My people must negotiate the twisted road between two vastly different ways of reckoning Diné identity: the traditional clan system, or the federally-mandated method driven by Blood Quantum. Only the latter provides "benefits", i.e. money. All of this may not have any bearing on what seems to be your motive: gaining compensation as people who are owed because of historical wrongs committed against a marginalized mixed-race demographic. I don't know if the federal government will look favorably on that. Which you probably know by now. If we lived in the old days, this wouldn't be an issue at all. But unfortunately, the federal government doesn't want to open the flood gates to claims by other marginalized groups if you get your way.

    • Denise

      I am the historian of the family. I am not researching my native history for anything but to document our history. I don't want land, money, or membership. A piece of paper doesn't confirm for me what I already know. I want to thank you guys for being so informative about the history of Black Natives. My family is of mixed ancestry which has been buried in historical denial and fear. I am trying to open the door.

    My mother is native American from the menominee tribe which is located in Wisconsin and as far as our history according to my tribe and anything I've read. We have always been in America and more importantly we have alway been in Wisconsin. We still have our orginal land (well most of it) and we are of lighter skin. Not all indigenous Americans are dark skin. It all depended on where in the country you lived (more sun or less) also our history goes back further then the 1400's before Columbus. So if what you say is true and Africans are the true Indians then what are we.

    • Jen Sochi

      I don't think he's saying "Africans are the true Indians". He said many of the indigenous peoples that lived near the coast and in the south were shipped to different countries as slaves. Meaning the slave trade wasn't just one sided. As you stated, it's important to note that indigenous peoples had all different skin tones depending on location. Unfairly, many darker skinned indigenous peoples were labeled "African-American" creating generations of people who don't know their true ancestry and were denied claims that lighter skinned indigenous peoples were able to obtain.

    For me, I just would like to know if what I've heard my entire life is true. My motivations are more about knowing myself. I've always been told that my maternal great-great grandmother was Chawtaw (not sure if I'm spelling it correctly) from either Louisiana or Arkansas; as she lived in both places and died in Junction City. My own features suggest that my people were not purely African. I embrace both, but I'd like to know more. If DNA test are not a good source, then what is?

  • Nicole

    You have to show proof of who are you descended from. Nowadays some tribes are starting to close that circle to protect their investments or in many cases way to many registered tribal members. My Tribe is starting to do that because they use to accept 3/4 and now they only accept 1/2 and 4/4 MS Choctaw. Its more like the tribal members that are registered are wanting to close it because of too many mixes that are claiming and using descendants that they are not actually related too. 1/2 half's are still able to get full benefits, but anything below that you will only get so much but not all benefits from the tribe.

  • Clouden

    I have a very mixed heritage, my maternal grandmother was descended from native people/Indian but was born in the Caribbean; she said that they were called Taino / Carib/ Arawak/ Lokoan indian/native people. But her stories said she said we were not originally from their and her grandfather fought for their freedom with tribes their. Some were decimated by Europeans, diseases and murdered it is hard to tell. She was born in Grenada and our family historically island hopped Grenada, Trinidad, St. Vincent, Barbados, Venezuela and other islands. But many traditions are a mixture some similar to American Native People and African traditions. Some, of the stories from my childhood were unbelieveable, but aren't so easily dismissed with the more I learn. We are not taught the Truth, the victors write the narrative.

  • Nandi charles

    I'm caribbean born but raised in the United States. My Dna test on both ancestry and 23 and me said I was 2.5% native American indian. My parents are both guyanese but my mom ancestry is from Barbados. Originally my mom family handed down stories that some colored man from the south east of the United States and his brother got separated and he left to go to the caribbean. I didn't believe the story until I got my results back and found that my DBa matched with black Americans as 2nd and 3rd cousins on the database from south carolina, georgia, mississippi, alabama and Florida. It was fascinating...that sort of confirmed my mom's family story that her great grandfather was southern American n relocated to the islands. Also I'm not sure what type or tribe of native American is in my bloodline but it came up on the tests. There was also white but that's another story.

    DNA testing companies will not tell the truth. I was told I have a un known percentage of DNA. What! (unidenifiable DNA) I'm in the process of finding a reliable DNA company, that is if thier is any out here who will tell the truth. These $5.00 Indians needs to be stopped and the true heritage and funds returned and go to the rightful people with Afro-Indian American ancestery. A person's true hertiage is every man/woman's right under God and the law of the land. So I say to these DNA testing companies STOP BREAKING THE LAW and do what's right.

Also the dates of African has to wrong, off by 500 years...

  • Stan

    I spent over a year researching my own ancestry. I used an audit approach reviewing as much testimonial, documentary and physical evidence as was available. What I found was shocking!! All four of my grandparents were of Native ancestry. I could not find even one African in my research. To be honest I only researched my father's fa completely. His father was 25 percent Cherokee and his mother decended from a different tribe. My family is from North and South Carolina where most of the slaves married Indians. Even the US government in 1897 acknowledged that southern blacks have "consideredable" Native ancestry. I also discovered the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 and it's "One Drop Rule" which classified a person with as little as one drop of African blood as black. This meant that black people in the southeast of United States were robbed of their Native ancestry while the same law allowed Europeans with one drop of Native blood to be classified as Native Americans. This is why the reservations are full of mixed European Native Americans and $5 Indians. I invite all to read the article i wrote on why DNA test results aren't realistic in These test results are saying that black Americans are 70-80 percent West African is a lie plan and simple. Personally I believe the average black American is indegenious, native, African and European....and the percentages should be in that order. This highest being indegenious and native and the lowest African and European. The US government combined the indegenious and African peoples and called the all colored, then negoes, then black and now African American. The correct classification is indegenious or Aboriginal peoples. I concur fully with this write-up and invite all to read my write-up posted on ... answered the question: Are DNA test results reliable? I have supplied much reference material including some by the author of this article. Shalom!!

    IT IS WHAT IT IS because itzallconnected. Sexism, racism, and colorism are pre-programmed, mental, illnesses founded, and grounded, in extremely low self-esteem. The belief in "white supremacy" has reduced the majority of pale-skinned [white and imitation white] people to living lies who have chosen to die in The Lie. Protecting the credo of a pale-skinned [white], male supremacy has always--in all ways--been more important than human decency, truth and justice. Discovery is a proud American tradition. The yet unknown tragedy is how "White People" continU to "diss-cover" their true, democratic, purpose. Soon enough, more of US will give thanks for the knowledge that becomes "won" with, and as, US. Prepare for The Rude Awakening of [white and imitation white] America. It will be called A 2020 Vision. "If we all are not free [to be], none of us is free [to be]." - Ida B. Wells-Barnett
