The Band

Sovereign Cherokee Nation Tejas is located in Texas, USA. As far as I can understand, this tribe is not federally nor state recognized.

"The people of the SCNT are also known as the Black Dutch, the Black Irish, the East Texas Cherokee, the Lost Cherokee, and the Tejas-Cherokee amongst other names. It is a separate, distinct, and independent "Native Sovereign Nation." This significant difference is virtue of whether or not the other tribes of our Cherokee cousins are considered "federally recognized" and administered by the Department of Interior and its sub Bureau, the Bureau of Indian Affairs which places them within the "Ward Trust" relationship of the United States government. Our other Cherokee cousins may also be considered sovereign, but in a "limited" way due to this Ward Trust relationship versus being "acknowledged" as a "domestic dependent nation."

The Flag

The flag is described in separate page, although there is no image of it:

Red - represents Valor
White - represents Purity
Blue - represents Honor
Green - represent Life
Blue panel above Red = Peace Status
*Red panel above Blue = War Status

(In 1839 we were driven, at gunpoint, from our East Texas homeland. We have remained "symbolically at war" with the Republic of Texas.)

  • Circle of Stars = symbolizes the Sacred Circle of Life, which is most dear and vitally important to indigenous people.
  • Large Central Star = representative of the "Oneness" of purpose of all the people of the Associated Indian Bands, to symbolically remind us of our obligation to our indigenous brothers, and to commemorate the past, recognize the present, and acknowledge the future leadership of the Sovereign Cherokee Nation Tejas: Alabama Biloxi Cherokee Choctaw Others Coushatta Delaware Ioni Kickapoo Matauo Quapaw Shawnee Tachocullake.
  • Open Wreath = to honor and commemorate our fallen Chiefs, Brothers, and Sisters who gave their lives in the 1839 battle with the Army of the Republic of Texas. It is a symbolic representation of the open Council of war, which must remain unclosed until all our land is returned to the people of the Allied Indian Bands.
  • Green on Wreath = to honor our friends, the people and the flag of the Republic of Mexico who referred to us as the "White Arabians" because of the turbans we wore instead of feather headdresses, and to acknowledge with deep and everlasting gratitude the sanctuary provided to some of our ancestors, the Lost Cherokees, by the people near San Fernando, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
