Beginning of a Long Walk (Little Bear)
You may ask yourself
many questions during your life time; like a child we all ask why
is the sky blue? What makes a rainbow? Why does a bird fly? Is there
a God? Am I an Indian? Where do I belong in life? Of these of which
there are many, more questions and that of one of these are that
of most importance, of which by yourself you may never know the
We will help you find many answers if you are truly seeking knowledge
to your questions. If you have come to play, we hope you enjoy your
time but this is where the rubber will meet the road. Some answers
will be on faith, and leaps of such matters - and thus people will
say that they are speculative science, and some will proclaim that
it is all fiction and nonsense some will tell you that there is
not such a thing. Some will become hurtful and filled with spite
and hatred. This will not be easy. Many will stay lost and or
undiscovered. You may lose all that you thought you had to
discover the truth behind the matter; there are many types of richness.
All of which is not money. Now lets be practical, and use common
With out labor, you can not plant seeds nor bring in a harvest to
reap the rewards of the fruits produced by them. To quote the
Christian Bible, Faith (is that of the essence in believing
in the things existence that are not seen, but are there because
of the belief) with out works faith is Dead. To believe
that you will have corn during the winter, you must work the field,
then tend the field and pant seed. Tend the field some more - yet
there is not one bit of corn. So the crop is still yet unseen, but
because of your faith and work from the labor the fruits of your
labor, your faith. The seed takes root and sprouts, and produces
fruit. When it is harvest time you must work again to reap your
harvest, thus you reap what you sew. All of the time you must all
so quietly care and tend to your crop protecting it against that
which would destroy it.
So you ask what does this have to do with Indians? Well, we Indians,
us Tejas, love our corn. So you are liken to a seed of corn to us,
which you will have many rolls during your lifetime. So while preparing
for citizenship, there will be a test. You are actually preparing
you and your family for success. (Those that become cursed by history
by not learning from it are destined to repeat it). (Those that
fail to plan, plan to fail). We encourage your walk with us, our
ways are gentle and peaceful, mostly an inward look of self with
a lot of work, we have a National ordinance of such that was given
to us by the Creator on the first days of creation.
You are your brothers Keeper!!

Of such peoples in the 15th through the 20th centuries there have
been those that collect data on and about any thing. Some of this
will be utilized data for our records.
In 1986 it was estimated that 2% of the population of Texas is of Native
descendants. Those descendants of the first
Texas inhabitant, the Tejas, could easily be in the millions today,
(close to 4 million) roughly about the size of inner city of Houston
Texas. They stated that
by 2000, the State would have a population of 22.5 million people and
that of which approximately 2% would be the descendants or relations
to the Tejas Nation, and that on half of a percent of the other territories
of the Tejas lands would also have Tejas ties in ancestry. I.e. The
Sovereign Nation of the Tejas Indians.
We were Sea faring people, as well as farmers, hunters and gatherers,
from the mountains to the prairies, and to the gulf waters and oceans.
Tejas was and is still a kingdom of hidden lands. We had and have
been farmers, ranchers and yes we were also sailors, and were at times
captured at sea by others used as slaves, made war against pirates
and yes, shipwrecked and such.
