    Native American Muslims
    The Message, July 1996

    My name is Mahir Abdal-Razzaaq El and I am a Cherokee Blackfoot
    American Indian who is Muslim. I am known as Eagle Sun Walker. I
    serve as a Pipe Carrier Warrior for the Northeastern Band of Cherokee
    Indians in New York City.
    There are other Muslims in our group. For the most part, not many
    people are aware of the Native American contact with Islam that began
    over one thousand years ago by some of the early Muslim travelers who
    visited us. Some of these Muslim travelers ended up living among our

    For most Muslims and non-Muslims of today, this type of information
    is unknown and has never been mentioned in any of the history books.
    There are many documents, treaties, legislation and resolutions that
    were passed between 1600s and 1800s that show that Muslims were in
    fact here and were very active in the comunities in which they lived.
    Treaties such as Peace and Friendship that was signed on the Delaware
    River in the year 1787 bear the signatures of Abdel-Khak and Muhammad
    Ibn Abdullah. This treaty detailes our continued right to exist as a
    community in the areas of commerce, maritime shipping, current form
    of government at that time which was in accordance with Islam.
    According to a federal court case from the Continental Congress, we
    help put the breath of life in to the newly framed constitution. All
    of the documents are presently in the National Archives as well as
    the Library of Congress.

    If you have access to records in the state of South Carolina, read
    the Moors Sundry Act of 1790. In a future article, Inshallah, I will
    go in to more details about the various tribes, their languages; in
    which some are influenced by Arabic, Persian, Hebrew words. Almost
    all of the tribes vocabulary include the word Allah. The traditional
    dress code for Indian women includes the kimah and long dresses. For
    men, standard fare is turbans and long tops that come down to the
    knees. If you were to look at any of the old books on Cherokee
    clothing up until the time of 1832, you will see the men wearing
    turbans and the women wearing long head coverings. The last Cherokee
    chief who had a Muslim name was Ramadhan Ibn Wati of the Cherokees in

    Cities across the United States and Canada bear that are of
    Indian and Islamic derivation. Have you ever wondered what the name
    Tallahassee means? It means that He Allah will deliver you sometime
    in the future.
