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."
