American Indian

Heritage Day

We, the thousands of American Indian tribal members and friends of various tribes, have waited long to finally receive this deeply deserved respect and recognition from the State of Texas

It is inappropriate for American Indian children to celebrate a day honoring a person for discovering a nation of people.

This bill deserves passage and will bring deserved recognition of the historic, cultural, and social contributions that American Indian communities and leaders have made to the State of Texas.

Social Injustice:
Ending the era of historical trauma!

This is a work-in-progress, discovering ways it could be improved, and set about refining a conscious thought to prepare to educate a new audience who wants to hear but needs details to fulfill their assumptions, create a new dialogue to change the landscape, and share to test physical and emotional strength.

The experiment teaches a diverse range to a new vision of endless possibilities of the American Indian perspective and examine the mental process in deductive reasoning to present a central focus of our latest milestones in a gradual, organic expansion, more balanced and creating a clear shift.

Our Culture

We have a unique opportunity and responsibility to celebrate the rich tradition of American Indians in the State of Texas.

Our Education

Our platforms are essential teaching tools to expose cultural & social justice issues from the American Indian perspective.

Negative Stereotypes

This is a fight of mentality versus conscious suggestion. Truth and propaganda to  think change is good of American Indians.

Our Identity

We are .5 of 1%, most researched but least understood beyond perceived “Founding Fathers” or “Immigrants built this land”
