The Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas held a Street Dedication Ceremony in which they bestowed the name of a street in honor of Will Hurd, United States Congressman for Texas District 23. The ceremony was held on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 on the lands of the Kickapoo Tribe. The Ceremony was attended by the Tribal Council, which consists of Estavio M. Elizondo, Sr., Chairman; David P. Valdez, Sr., Secretary; David Trevino, Treasurer; Kendall R. Scott, Member; and Daniel Gonzalez, Sr., Member. Also in attendance were local City of Eagle Pass officials, including Mayor Ramsey English Cantu, and many members of the Kickapoo Tribe. Congressman Hurd has kept the Kickapoo Tribe informed about congressional and federal agency actions that might affect the Tribe, has remained in touch with the Kickapoo Tribe on border issues, and has helped the Kickapoo Tribe connect with federal officials who deal with border concerns at the Washington, D.C. level, such as the White House Intergovernmental Affairs Office, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State. Congressman Hurd thanked everyone in attendance and appreciated the Tribe’s gesture of naming a street on Tribal land in his honor.
