Mostafa Al-Azemmouri
First Moroccan’s Discovery of America
Al-Azemmouri has also been turned into one of the legendary figures that made clear ceremonial and ritual impacts on the behaviors of the Zuni ancestors in America. In this, Al-Azemmouri is best acknowledged as having been the "first black man" to set foot in the New Land. The representation of Al-Azemmouri’s trip has had much space in some sixteenth century Spanish accounts. It is in this narrative visibility that Mostafa Al-Azemmouri developed as a Moroccan slave named Estevanico de Azemor. Al-Azemmouri’s historical presence in America in early 16th Century has been obscured in many respects. Nevertheless, Spanish historical overseas conquests discuss the lop-sided spaces allowed for Al-Azemmouri's experience in history and literature. During the drought of 1520-1521 Al-Azemmouri was captured by the Portuguese conquers in 1513, then sold into slavery to Andres Dorantes. Mostafa Al-Azemmouri, the first Moroccan to set foot in America - the State of Arizona in early 16th Century.
Al-Azemmouri was born around 1500 in Azemmour Morocco. He is known for Moroccans as Mostafa Al-Azemmouri, and for Western historical archives as "Estevanico the Negro" Al-Azemmouri's death remains a matter of debate because it lacks historical validations. 2012 Moroccan Cultural Studies Centre With the aim to govern the territory of the American Southwest, Al-Azemmouri's journey began on June 17th, 1527 with five vessels sailing from the western coast of Spain and heading towards America His corporeal journey to America is associated in its broadest context with Spain's earliest efforts to colonize the country. During the Sixteenth century Spanish expedition, Al-Azemmouri has contributed as a guide from Florida to the pacific coast. His death is argued to supposedly be due first to the fact that he represented a political threat to the Zuni people and second, to the fact that he made himself disliked by personal attitudes. His death is argued to supposedly be due first to the fact that he represented a political threat to the Zuni people and second, to the fact that he made himself disliked by personal attitudes. Finally, it is assumed that the death of Al-Azemmouri has happened due to his intruding on some religious ceremony of the Zuni. Hamza El Fasiki, MA
