Notice:
All courts that are in session will remain open including the Circuit Courts and any cases specifically dealing with the Tejas. The Court of Discovery will place cases for the Sovereign Court to hear. Thus, the Tribal Courts take cases on such basis of Judicial review.

Please note: The SNTI / HCF will be doing some major house keeping, due to the major disasters which have struck within the Tejas Nation: Katrina, Rita, Wilma, the fires and floods in Texas and in other areas. You must register your cases with the central offices here, or with in the Summer Councils offices in Houston and those cases will be eventually assigned. This process will move slower than usual, so please be patient.

You will find many helpful items and up dates - postings of tribal codes, and laws on line. Public notices and other legal aspects, postings will be by dates and place of action to be taken and what Tribal court that will be handling it. At this time the policies for all of our web pages are being developed and will be placed throughout our site upon their completion.

Our legal system, for the purposes of this web site, is to assist those with information and to assist those persons seeking such justice through Tribal court. Thus jurisdiction of the Court, is out lined and such comity of court enforced by USC 25 and upheld by The USSC Cherokee Nation V Georgia.
