Welcome to the
Texas Band of Yaqui Indians
"Lios Em Chaniavu"
Welcome to the Texas Band of Yaqui Indians, a State Recognized Tribal Group under Resolution S.R.989. Our mission is to preserve the Culture and Traditions passed down to us by our Mountain Yaqui Ancestors. All Members have proof of Indian Ancestry on file with this office of the State of Texas.
"Our job is to insure Tribal members find the Services they need for every State. Health and State programs, Scholarships and Grants, Tribal Programs for schools, and many other State and Government programs."
The Texas Band of Yaqui Indians are protected under the International Indigenous Rights Declared by the United Nations of 2016. We have the right to protect our religious and ceremonial way of life passed down generations. We aim to protect our Tribal Members from Cultural Discrimination
and scrutiny and to preserve our Tribal ways many have lost through Religious Colonization. The new war is to fight for our rights our ancestors suffered and died for, so we could be "Free Indians" and live indigenous like we always have.
