(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.
