Carrizo/Comecrudo is not just 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 Comecrudo tribe of Texas, we present ourselves in the cyber world and to the World in general.
The chairman Juan Mancias has dedicated his life to reclaiming his people and culture. Through his actions he has lead the tribe in support of local communities during disasters, tradegies and saving the planet while being true to his lifeways. Throughout these efforts tribal members are in multiple areas throughout the state of Texas and beyond supporting these efforts.
We thank everyone who who has donated time, money and resources to support the tribe.
Information about the Carrizo/Comecrudo people:
The Carrizo/Comecrudo tribe lived along the South Texas Rio Grande delta since before Texas joined the union. Texas joined the Union. As a state, Texas chose not to honor early treaties or recognize several indigenous people. This includes the Carrizo/Comecrudo tribe.
There are no reservations or casinos for the Carrizo/Comecrudo tribe to utilize; to grow their nations on. Many of the tribes have been scrubbed out of the history books. This has limited their ability to practice their life ways and teach their children. If you choose to support the Carrizo/Comecrudo efforts to purchase land, develop youth programs, and protect the earth in West Texas please follow their Facebook Page.
