M’tchawa. Nayi Tza-keej n’ah t’uh. Muda Awa? How are you? I am looking for my relatives. Where are you?
N’ah Tu’h, my relatives, if you are out there, reach out: 713-562-1398.
Your relatives are in Alamo, Dallas, Donna, Corpus Christi, Houston, Galveston, and even as far west as California. For many centuries we have been in hiding. We are hiding no longer. Members who have survived from different clans are still here. We are very small in number but we are here.
You have a language. You have relatives. You are not alone. You are no longer the only one. We no longer have to live in secret. Our lives are no longer in danger as long as we have each other.
