f I could ask your consideration 1."relation between Native Americans have been sadly neglected. The entire Afro-Native American cultural exchange and contact experience is a fascinating and significant subject, but one largely obscured by a focus upon European activity and European colonial relations with "peripheral" subject peoples." (pg. 1) The 101's have been looked at as a set of questions and answers that tell a whole story when in fact each question in its self is a story all by its self. Also sometimes we fail to pay attention to Rules of English Composition: the Parts of Speech, Capitalization Rules Punctuation and Punctuation Rules all have their own language.

2.In Caveat Emptor the Prophet states "The Moorish Movement has been well planned by the Prophet Noble Drew Ali whose latent powers are abundant unknown and may be called into action, as a matter of defense, at any moment" (pg. 11) When studying what Allah has revealed to the Prophet how many of us ask Allah and the Prophet : Allah What are you say to me what do you want me to see/cee? Drew Ali what are you saying to me; what is it that you want me to find? How many of us ask Allah before we read any thing to guide us? You might be surprised at what happens!

3."Contact in Europe can be seen as significant because both the African and Native American ancestry there tend to be absorbed into the general European society, and whatever earlier cultural developments have occurred have now become part of modern European culture." (pg.1) Scholar Adbid Rashhad quotes Edwin C. Rynolds who states

4."The Negro Slave dresses very much like Seminoles,scantly when they were at work in their fields but with colorful splendor of adornment --turbans and shawls, smocks, moccasins and leggins, glittering metal ornaments-- when they were bent upon enjoyment of festive occasion. The Seminole Negroes were interpreters, farmers -- in fact, they had more knowledge of soil cultivation than the Seminoles. Also they established a separate town in the west. According to some Muslim scholars and the dictionary, a turban is primarily a Muslim Head Dress." (pg. 15-16) Upon studying the above quoted paragraph when using the 101's we translate any where you see Negro replace with Moorish/Moor/Asiatic. The close connection of description displays/suggests that there is a close connection between Native American who are erroneously called Indians with there actual name is "Aboriginal".

Also it is very important that we investigate the Dawes Rolls and all the DNA testing with certain most recently being kicked out of tribes due to no blood line connection. Such individuals may be considered descendants of the $5.00 Indians who supposedly paid their way into Aboriginal Tribes. Also with the Prophet Oral Tradition being connected with the Cherokee Tribe. No wonder people are worrying about how and what America will look like in the future. Moorish-American are waking up proclaiming their Nationality which will in my professional opinion change the very face of America. 1. Africans And Native Americans By Jack D. Forbes (pg.1) 2.
