Tribal council files suit against management of The Alamo, claiming religious freedom abridged

SAN ANTONIO – (CN) – An indigenous nation, a member of its tribal council and the San Antonio Missions Cemetery Association filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday morning against the Alamo’s management and related government agencies, claiming these entities violated the nation’s constitutional right to freely exercise their religion.


On Saturday, Alamo administrators cited safety concerns when they barred the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation from concluding “La Semana de Recuerdos,” an annual remembrance ceremony honoring the ancestors they say are interred under the Texas mission. Saturday would have marked the 25th such celebration.
