About Us

Our identity as Carrizo Comecrudo is not just as a Tribe and/or Nation, it is a way of living. It is the dream of the Ancestors to survive and give life to their future generations, in spite of downfalls that have haunted every Aboriginal People in the Western Hemisphere. So with criteria being set by our ancestors and elders, we as the Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas present ourselves in the cyber world and to the physical world in general to these ends:

To our own recognition;

To the greater good and welfare of Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe;

To recapture, maintain, and preserve our lifeways;

To developing of a strong financial foundation for members;

To identify and reclaim our relatives, lands, and ancestors;

To the re-interment of our ancestors, those in museums to be returned for re-interment, including artifacts that are pertinent to the Aboriginal people of Texas;

To developing a Texas Indian Network that will be an advocate for all Texas Tribes;

To work at the education and re-education of Texas Historical events like the Republic of Rio Grande;

To bring a better understanding of our connectedness to the natural order that we are a part of in the protection of Mother Earth.

We, the Carrizo Comecrudo, will always try to connect the past to the future by living in the present. Our desire is to be advocates of peace and harmony among our own people as well as other Nations. This has been one of our greatest traits as we traversed through Texas and beyond.
