Nightwolf is one of the founders of The National Congress of Black American Indians (NCBAI) which was created following one of Jay’s visions. The formation and of the NCBAI sought to remove the taboo of mixed ancestry and bring together those who could trace their ancestry to both communities. A subject often fraught with complicated questions of race, identity, and citizenship.
Jay said he himself did not know that he also was descended from enslaved Africans until after his grandmother, a Taino Indian from Puerto Rico, passed away and old family letters were recovered.
“In the history of this Western Hemisphere, because of the price on Native American people’s heads, our people hid in other folk’s identities just to survive,” he said. “But if you don’t accept all of you, you are lying to yourselves.”
