In the heart of downtown Miami high-rise buildings line the streets on every side, while traffic whizzes past at a hectic pace. But in the midst of this chaos, a rustic wooden cabin stands alone. This is the house of one very obstinate man. Indeed, Ishmael Bermudez has been offered big money for his modest home, but he refuses all offers. And the reason why may well surprise you.

Bermudez’s dad is American, but he himself was born in Columbia to a Columbian mother. Yet his father, an ex-serviceman, descends from the Navajo and Pueblo Native American tribes. And Bermudez, also known as Golden Eagle, has always felt a strong connection to his indigenous roots.
