As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households $30 per month off their internet bills. To deliver maximum cost savings to families, the Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from 20 leading internet providers to offer ACP-eligible households a high-speed internet plan for no more than $30 per month. Eligible families who pair their ACP benefit with one of these plans can receive high-speed internet at no cost.

Facts: More than 30 tribes served as Code Talkers.

Despite not becoming US citizens until June 2, 1924, the first reported use of Native Americans as code talkers was on October 17, 1918 during World War I, nearly 24 years after the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Tribes serving as code talkers during both the Pacific and European campaigns included Comanche, Cheyenne, Cherokee, Osage, Lakota, Dakota, Chippewa, Oneida, Sac and Fox, Meskwaki, Hopi, Assiniboine, Kiowa, Pawnee, Akwesasne, Menominee, Creek, Cree Seminole Tribes and other unlisted tribes. In World War II, additional tribes aided in the code talker efforts, including Oglala Sioux Tribe, Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe, and Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe.
Congratulations to our brother Chickasaw Steve!!!

Steve won the Sony PlayStation5. Steve was one of our random winners from the list of names that completed the UITCT Community Needs Assessment.

The UITCT Community Needs Assessment will be a valuable source of data to identify our strengths and weaknesses. From the entire UITCT staff and board, we thank everyone for their feedback! Your voice helps UITCT better serve our Native American community.
UITCT would like to give a BIG shout-out to Coach Rodriguez and his staff at Invictus for challenging these young minds to be their best. On this day, our Native youth had a blast!

A special BIG shout-out to the volunteers that made our station look so easy.

We are looking forward to the next soccer clinic! Stay tuned for more details.

If you’re a Chickasaw member or descendent and would like to connect with the North Texas Chickasaw, please email Jessica Johnson, Chickasaw, at [email protected]
“Our collective efforts to reclaim our voice and our power were driven by our shared commitment to combating the invisibilization of Urban Native people -- one of the most under-represented and under-resourced populations in America. Despite making up over 70 percent of the total AI/AN population, our urban Native communities have traditionally been excluded from conversations, decisions, and outreach efforts that lead to resource allocation and policy decisions. The Democracy is Indigenous; Reclaiming our Voice, Reclaiming Our Power report, is a living testament of our shared commitment to organizing our communities, building electoral power, and transforming an incomplete narrative that does not include all our urban Indian people.”

A big huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers that helped get the food out. We served chicken, dried and canned goods, milk, and honeydew melon.

If you are interested to help volunteer every 3rd Wednesday for UITCT Mobile Food Pantry, please message Michael or call (214) 941-1050 x207.

Feedback on the mobile food pantry has been all positive. Let’s keep up the good work for our community.

The Indian health system is the only major federal health care provider funded through annual appropriations. If IHS were to receive mandatory funding, or at the least, advance appropriations, it would not be subject to government shutdowns and continuing resolutions. You can make a difference! Call your Member of Congress to support advance appropriations in the FY23 funding bills.

Today we stand and honor our Veterans.

From the original land protectors of Turtle Island to all the tribal nation code talkers of both WWI and WWII, and from every military campaign beyond that, we salute and give respect to the brave women and men for their service and heroic deeds.

“Native Americans serve in the United States Armed Forces at five times the national average. For a community that has persevered through decades of challenges, Native Americans – also called American Indians – have remained steadfast in their defense of the United States as members of the Armed Forces for centuries.

Since 9/11, nearly 19 percent of Native Americans have served in the armed forces, compared to an average of 14 percent of all other ethnicities. Among the 573 federally recognized tribes — each with their own cultures, traditions, belief systems, and stances on war — military service remains remarkably consistent.” (2019 source)


In observance of Veteran's Day, the clinic will be closed Friday 11/11.

We will reopen Monday 11/14 at 8:00 a.m.

11/4/2022 Flu & COVID Booster Vaccination Event Please click the link to complete this form.


Happy Native American and Indigenous Heritage Month.

Texas Native Health, formerly Dallas Inter-Tribal Center, in Dallas, TX, recognizes the Original Peoples who first established the foundation of these lands.

In older time, pine and cottonwood trees covered the city of Dallas like a forest. Native people that roamed freely knew Dallas as the area where forest meets prairie. The Caddo, including a very long list of all Caddo confederacies, which includes the Caddoan linguistic stock of Arikara / Pawnee / Wichita / Kitsai / Tawakoni / Waco & Wichita, closely inhabited the Dallas and Fort Worth area.

In all, thousands of tribal people have migrated through and lived in Texas. We pay tribute to the many known, and unknown, tribes that are aboriginal to Texas. We offer our prayer and appreciation for these lands. We stand in unification with all protecting the land, air, and water.

We Are All On Native Land.

Happy and memorial Indigenous Pink Day! Happening today at 1 p.m. at 1269 UITCT Inter-Tribal Outreach Building. All are welcome to come and attend. Healthy cancer fighting foods and beverages will be served.

Indigenous Pink Day is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for Native people. UITCT invites Indigenous people of all ages to join us by wearing pink and sharing photos on social media using the hashtag to raise awareness of breast cancer in Indian Country.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Native women, and is the second leading cause of cancer death. However, all bodies have breast tissue and are at risk for developing breast cancer. Indigenous Pink Day aims to educate Native communities about the importance of early detection, and remind women, men, non-binary, and genderfluid relatives to talk to their doctors about breast cancer screening.
