Agency History

The Texas Commission for Indian Affairs was created in 1965 (House Bill 1096, 59th Texas Legislature, Regular Session) to take over state administration and supervision for the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation. The Coushatta, a Muskogean-speaking Native American people, are known as the Koasati in their own language; one of the three federally-recognized tribes they belong to is the Alabama-Coushatta. Prior state administration for the reservation began in 1930, when the state of Texas began making appropriations for it and designated the Texas State Board of Control as the supervising agency. In 1949 (House Bill 1, 51st Legislature, Regular Session), administration was transferred to the newly-created Texas Board for Texas State Hospitals and Special Schools. The federal government relinquished its trusteeship of the Alabama-Coushatta land and other assets in 1955. In 1965, the Board for Texas State Hospitals and Special Schools was abolished and all responsibilities for the reservation were transferred to the Commission for Indian Affairs. This Commission was composed of three members, appointed by the governor, with senate approval, to six-year overlapping terms. A chairman was elected by the members for a two-year term.

The initial responsibilities of the Commission were to develop human and economic resources of the reservation and assist the Tribal Council, the governing body of the Indians, in making the reservation self-sufficient. Specific goals were to improve the health, educational, agricultural, business, and industrial capacities of the reservation. A superintendent was appointed by the Commission to manage and supervise the reservation, subject to policy directives of the Commission.

Additional responsibilities were given to the Commission in ensuing years. In 1967 the state recognized the Tigua Indians of El Paso as a Texas Indian tribe. House Bill 888 was passed during the 60th Legislature, Regular Session, transferring all trust responsibilities for the Tigua Indians to the Commission. In 1968 the federal government recognized the Tiguas as a Texas tribe and transferred all responsibilities to the state. The Commission assisted this tribe, now the Tigua Reservation, in the same manner as it did the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation.

In 1975 (House Bill 393, 64th Legislature, Regular Session), the agency's name was changed to the Texas Indian Commission. An executive director was appointed by the Commission to manage, supervise, and implement Commission policies. This director, in turn, appointed a superintendent at each reservation to work with the Tribal Councils in carrying out programs and policies of the Commission. Executive directors for the Indian Commission serving during the time periods covered by these records were Walt Broemer, late 1960s-1982, formerly the Superintendent of the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation; and Raymond Apodaca, 1982-1989, former Superintendent of the Tigua Reservation.

Responsibilities for another Indian tribe were added in 1977. Senate Bill 168, 65th Legislature, Regular Session, recognized the Traditional Kickapoo Indians of Texas (Eagle Pass area) as a Texas Indian tribe. The bill mandated the Commission to assist these Indians and state-chartered intertribal Indian organizations in applying for and managing, jointly with the Commission, federal funds and programs and private funds, for improving the health, education, and housing standards of these Indians and increasing their economic capabilities. In 1979, an Attorney General Opinion, MW-49, declared this bill unconstitutional, an action that was especially detrimental to the Kickapoos. The Kickapoos and the state-chartered organizations were not federally recognized at this time, therefore Attorney General Mark White determined the Indian Commission (TIC) could not assist them because the TIC was only empowered to assist federally recognized tribes and organizations. This determination began a move to obtain federal recognition for the Kickapoos. In 1982, they were recognized as an official sub-group of the Oklahoma Kickapoo Indian Tribe, enabling them to acquire their own reservation, under control of the Bureau of Indian Affairs instead of the state of Texas.

In addition to individual Indian tribes, several intertribal Indian organizations exist in Texas. In 1976-1977 the Indian Commission joined with the Dallas Intertribal Center to form the Texas Intertribal Housing Agency. This agency worked to provide safe and decent housing for non-reservation low-income Indians through HUD (Housing and Urban Development) programs.

Another Indian-related organization with which the state of Texas and the Indian Commission became involved was the Governors' Interstate Indian Council. This organization was formed in 1949 and provides a venue for states with substantial Indian populations to meet and discuss Indian issues and state-tribal relations. During the existence of the Indian Commission, the state sent delegates to most of the council's annual meetings. In the mid-1960s Walt Broemer, the Superintendent of the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation, later TIC Executive Director, was the chair of this organization; in the late 1980s Ray Apodaca, TIC Executive Director, was the President of the Council.

The tribes began a move in the mid-1980s to have their trust responsibilities transferred back to federal control. The federal government passed a law on August 18, 1987, reassuming responsibility for the Texas Indian tribes. This eventually contributed to the demise of the Indian Commission. The Commission was due for Sunset Review in 1989. Three bills (House Bill 858, House Bill 1252, and Senate Bill 481) were introduced in the 71st Legislature to continue the Commission's existence and all failed. The Texas Indian Commission was abolished September 1, 1989.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Indian Commission was initially named the Texas Commission for Indian Affairs, created in 1965 (House Bill 1096, 59th Texas Legislature, Regular Session) to take over state administration and supervision for the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation. These records cover the entire existence of the Texas Commission for Indian Affairs and its successor, the Texas Indian Commission (TIC), reflecting the operations of the TIC as it worked with the Alabama-Coushatta, the Tigua, and the Kickapoo tribes; with intertribal organizations in the state; and with the Governors' Interstate Indian Council; its role in effecting passage of state and federal legislation beneficial to Indians and Indian concerns; and its role in providing information to the public, legislature, Indian organizations, and others on Texas Indians and Indian-related topics. Records include correspondence, reports, minutes, legislation, financial materials, clippings, articles, brochures, announcements, notes, audiocassettes, and other materials, dating 1954-1989.

Topics covered in these records include appropriations and other finances; grants; legislation; social and economic issues such as education, alcoholism and other health concerns, housing, economic development and job training, sale of Indian arts and crafts, and tourism; cultural issues such as the burial and exhibition of Indian remains and funerary objects, and establishing Indian ancestry; legal status of Indian lands; recognition of the Kickapoo Indians; restoration of the federal trust to the Alabama-Coushatta and Tigua tribes; continuation of the Texas Indian Commission, and routine administrative tasks. One intertribal Indian organization well represented in these records is the Texas Intertribal Housing Agency.

To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine records types.

Restrictions

Restrictions on Access

Materials do not circulate, but may be used in the State Archives search room. Materials will be retrieved from and returned to storage areas by staff members.

The following restriction applies only to the series Tigua Indians: Tigua tribal rolls have been found to contain social security numbers, which is information excepted from disclosure under the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.147). Photocopies of the rolls with all social security numbers redacted are filed in the same box as the original tribal rolls and may be accessed by the public. Because portions of these records fall under the Public Information Act exception for social security numbers (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.147), an archivist must review these records before they can be accessed for research. The records may be requested for research under the provisions of the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Chapter 552). The researcher may request an interview with an archivist or submit a request by mail (Texas State Library and Archives Commission, P.O. Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711), fax (512-463-5436), email (Dir_Lib@tsl.texas.gov), or see our web page (http://www.tsl.texas.gov/agency/customer/pia.html). Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information. If our review reveals information that may be excepted by the Public Information Act, we are obligated to seek an open records decision from the Attorney General on whether the records can be released. The Public Information Act allows the Archives ten working days after receiving a request to make this determination. The Attorney General has 45 working days to render a decision. Alternately, the Archives can inform you of the nature of the potentially excepted information and if you agree, that information can be redacted or removed and you can access the remainder of the records.

Restrictions on Use

Most records created by Texas state agencies are not copyrighted. State records also include materials received by, not created by, state agencies. Copyright remains with the creator. The researcher is responsible for complying with U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17 U.S.C.).

Restrictions on Access
Tigua tribal rolls have been found to contain social security numbers, which is information excepted from disclosure under the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.147). Photocopies of the rolls with all social security numbers redacted are filed in the same box as the original tribal rolls and may be accessed by the public. Because portions of these records fall under the Public Information Act exception for social security numbers (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.147), an archivist must review these records before they can be accessed for research. The records may be requested for research under the provisions of the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Chapter 552). The researcher may request an interview with an archivist or submit a request by mail (Texas State Library and Archives Commission, P.O. Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711), fax (512-463-5436), email (Dir_Lib@tsl.texas.gov), or see our web page (http://www.tsl.texas.gov/agency/customer/pia.html). Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information. If our review reveals information that may be excepted by the Public Information Act, we are obligated to seek an open records decision from the Attorney General on whether the records can be released. The Public Information Act allows the Archives ten working days after receiving a request to make this determination. The Attorney General has 45 working days to render a decision. Alternately, the Archives can inform you of the nature of the potentially excepted information and if you agree, that information can be redacted or removed and you can access the remainder of the records.
