Kenyan Nubian Family, Council Of Elders (1940's)
Connected to the foundation of the Moorish Divine and National movement that was started by Prophet Noble Drew Ali in 1913 is understanding the National side of the Moorish movement. The National side consist of finance, economics, business, civics, constitutional law, nation and government building. Prophet Noble Drew Ali mentioned many times the term "constitutional fold", which means what is inside of the constitution and all that is connected to it. This should be of no surprise since he incorporated our Moorish movement "into" the government. Moorish Americans should be working to go further into the de jure, republican part of the said government. Hence "I AM A CITIZEN OF THE U.S.A." on the Nationality and Identification card.
Besides Our Authority, Literature and the Charter of Prophet Noble Drew Ali's great Moorish movement, what needs to be studied is the Proclamations of President Abraham Lincoln (four of them), the 13th Amendment with "20 sections" and the Hebrew Code which is part of the constitutional fold. Those keys back up the proclamation (naturalization in constitutional law) process of Moorish Americans returning to their Divine Creed, Free National Name, Birth Rights of our ancestors and more. This includes the laws of freedom's three provisions of Naturalization, Colonization and Compensation.
Through Act. 6 of the Moorish Divine and National Movement Constitution and By-Laws, and with Article 1, section 8, clause 4 of the U.S. Constitution, Prophet Noble Drew Ali opened up the door way for those who have been labeled, classified, identified or "described" as Black, Negro, Colored, Ethiopian, West Indian, Native American, Native Indian, American Indian, Amerindian, Black Indian, Latino, Mexican, Afro American, African American, First People, First Nation, Original People, Asiatics, Aboriginal, Indigenous, Paleo, Pre-Adamite, Autochthon, etc. to correct their status through the lawful process of Naturalization. Prophet Noble Drew Ali said "take these and save yourself" while holding up two books. They were the Moorish Holy Koran and the Moorish 101 Questionnaire. In the 1940's, Grand Sheiks Timothy and Richardson Dingle-El under the direction of Sheik John Givens-El who many Moors recognized as Reincarnated Prophet Noble Drew Ali went to Washington D.C. to set up a uniform process of Naturalization for ALL Moorish Americans. Through many communications and meetings with officials of the military in the Pentagon, the Moorish National Bureau of Vital Statistics was set up. The Moorish National Bureau of Vital Statistics, which is recognized and properly registered is the only uniform way, under the authority of Prophet Noble Drew Ali and under the umbrella of the Moorish Science Temple The Divine and National Movement of North America, Inc; #13 The Moorish American National Republic that is available for Moorish American to go through the proper lawful and constitutional process of Naturalization; proclaiming nationality as most know it as.
"The Negro problem is being solved only as it can, and that is by the Moorish National Divine Movement" - Prophet Noble Drew Ali in the article Voice Of The Prophet
Colonization now consist of land that the Moorish Americans are to receive immediately for what happen to our ancestors during the times of slavery. That record has been kept all this time by proof of the last name with no titles of nobility, not having a name that reflects our nationality, not practicing the ancient creed (religion) of our ancestors, and by the birth certificate and other documents that exist. This immediate land area is what President Abraham Lincoln called the "Egypt Of The West", the interior of the United States that takes up over 22 States today between the Allegheny Mountains and the Rocky Mountains.
The Holy Prophet said, "If my Principles are carried out (the principles of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice), the United States will be the riches and most prosperous country on the earth, if not, the worst is yet to come."
The Holy Prophet told the Moors "do not throw away your slave names (your family name), because we have a birth-right under them. For the work that our ancestors did in slavery time, we will be paid off for this, and with compounded interest." - Bro. J. Blakely Bey told the Moors this.
Many people have heard of reparation being promoted for those who were held as slaves and their descendants. However reparation is not (w)holistic, Compensation is key and the real deal lawfully. Black's Law Dictionary 4th Edition Revised, page 354 says:
COMPENSATION - "Indemnification; payment of damages; making amends; making whole; giving an equivalent or substitute of equal value; that which is necessary to restore an injured party to his former position"
Notice the words "former position". In reading the literature and words of Prophet Noble Drew Ali you will see him use the words "said" government, "return", "back", "again", "fallen" humanity, etc. Showing that the Moorish Americans was at a former position at one time, before we fell into the many slave status and modern slave labels many of our people are still in today. Naturalization, Colonization and Compensation is the National side of the Moorish movement that Prophet Noble Drew Ali was hinting at and pointing out, but it would take study, study, study, guidance and minds of genius Citizens in order to understand what he was highlighting. All of this is taught in our Moorish School of Law and History classes, Sunday Conference Calls and touch upon at meetings that students, members and Citizens are having.
In history, there are many examples on what the Compensation part "could" look like for Moorish Americans. Below are examples of two stories. The stories consist of a Creek Freedmen by the name of Dan Tucker and a woman by the name Sarah Rector.
"Creek Freedmen are African American people who were former slaves of Muscogee Creek tribal members before 1866; they were freed (emancipated) by the 1866 treaty with the United States and granted citizenship in the Creek Nation. The Creek Freedmen had lived and worked the land in Indian Territory prior to the American Civil War. The term also includes their descendants. Many have been of partial Creek descent by blood. Most of the Freedmen were former slaves of tribal members who had lived in both upper and lower Creek territories in the Southeast. In some villages, Creek citizens married enslaved men or women, and had mixed-race children with them. Interracial marriages were common during this time, and many Creek Freedmen were partly of Creek Indian ancestry. The Dawes Rolls have assumed great importance as tribes have increasingly relied on them as records of ancestors for determining issues of descent and tribal membership for land claims and other benefits. Critics charge that many mistakes were made in how individuals were recorded. For instance, although many Freedmen were of Creek descent, they were included only on Freedmen rolls, which reduced their qualification for tribal membership in later years. The peace treaty of 1866 granted them full citizenship and rights regardless of proportion of Creek or Indian ancestry. Since the changes in Creek code in 2001, changing the rules for membership in the Nation, the issues have become more controversial." - Creek Freedmen wiki page
The story of Creek Freedmen Dan Tucker can be observed by an article written in his time. It says: "Running wild and irresponsible as a colt, little Dan Tucker, ten, a colored boy, living on a rocky Oklahoma farm of 80 acres, is ignorant of the fact that he is one of the richest boys in Oklahoma. Little Dan often sings for his supper, but he doesn't have to. The month of March saw deposited to his credit $12,000 and every day he makes not less than $190. Dan is the sun of James and Elizabeth Tucker, children of slaves of the Creek Indians freed by the Civil War. By virtue of a treaty made between the United States and the Creek Indians at Fort Smith, Ark., in 1866, slaves formerly belonging to the Creeks, and their descendants, were given an equal share with their former owners in the government allotment of the old Creek lands in the Indian territory. And that is how Dan Tucker now owns 160 acres of land lying east of Cushing, Oklahoma, in the heart of the newly developed Cushing oil field. The land was allotted to him in a supplementary division made by the government in 1905, and Dan had been enrolled as an eligible by his father. For years the land was reputedly no account. Two years ago, long after Dan's parents had given up hope of return from the land, the Prairie Oil & Gas Co., arranged a lease. Oil now is rushing out of that portion of Creek like water from a lawn sprinkler. Dan gets one-eighth of the gross proceeds from his oil wells and the Prairie Oil & Gas Co. does all the work and stands all the expenses of operation." - COLORED BOY, 10, GETS $190 A DAY
Keep in mind in today's standards $190.00 a day that Dan Tucker was getting is estimated to be about over $4,000 a day today.
The next story is about Sarah Rector, a Creek Freedwoman who also got compensation for her land. One source reads: "She was a young black girl born in Indian Territory on March 3, 1902. Her parents were Joseph and Rose Rector, all of Taft, Indian Territory. Her story is similar to that of Danny Tucker another black child born in Indian Territory. He, like Sarah had a humble beginning, and he, like Sarah would make headlines for sudden wealth acquired by oil rich land. Early in her young life, Sarah received a land allotment like all who were members of the Creek Nation. Like thousands of blacks once held in bondage by the Five slave-holding tribes, (Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole Nations) she and her family members received land allotments prior to Oklahoma statehood. It was a general practice that Freedmen often receive land considered to be of less value for farming as did citizens declared as Indians By Blood, and Inter-Married Whites. However, the story changed when oil was discovered on her land allotment, near Taft, Oklahoma. Her wealth caused immediate alarm and all efforts were made to put the child Sarah under "guardianship" of whites whose lives became comfortable immediately. Meanwhile Sarah still lived in humble surroundings. As white businessmen took control of her estate, efforts were also made to put her under control of officials at Tuskegee Institute." - Remembering Sarah Rector, Creek Freedwoman
In a news article written in The Chicago Defender The Chicago; on November 15, 1913; it mentioned how Sarah Rector was a brown skin girl, but she was made the status of "white". Showing once again that "black" and "white" in law is NOT a skin color, but a "status" in law. The article also showed how much Sarah Rector was getting compensated per day, month and year. In 1913 it states that Sarah Rector was receiving $475 a day, $14,250 a month, $171,000 a year. In 2013 value that is estimated to be about $11,000 a day, $300,000 a month and $4,000,000 a year.
Of course being a young, melanated sister who was wealthy and didnt have to worry about an income for the rest of her life, Sarah Rector started to get endless love letters and marriage proposals from men all over.

If you have any questions about our classes and Sunday Conference Calls the information is on the left hand side of the website for each.Bro. B. Jones El of Temple 43 heard the Holy Prophet said, "Children, you are just plain rich."
Holy Prophet said, "I have got the world in a jug, and the stopper in my hand. I have got the Asiatic, and I have got the European. I have got the silver and I have got the gold."
Sister A. Brown El of Temple 4 and 25 said that the Holy Prophet said, "Don’t throw away your Bibles, because I am going to use them to condemn the government."
