Here is what we stand for besides promoting legislation (such as this) which seeks to protect us and our hobby, as well as gain back our long lost collecting rights.
Mission: To promote and protect the collecting of Authentic Texas Artifacts and all activities there in such as the digging, surface hunting, buying, selling, and trading of Native American Artifacts.
About: TACA is grassroots organization comprised of collectors and patrons of Native American Artifacts and Heritage. It was founded in 2006 by Chase Jennings, an avid artifact collector, for the purpose of uniting Texas artifact collectors in order to protect and promote the preservation and collecting of Native American Artifacts.
Bylaws: We permit the art of knapping so long as these reproductions are sold or traded as such and in no way or form presented as authentic. We condemn the sale or trade of rechipped artifacts, restored artifacts, and all forms of fake (reproduced) artifacts if they are not clearly presented as such with a clear statement of “These are reproductions of artifacts and are in no way, shape, or form authentic or/These are restored artifacts which have been repaired in the following ways…these artifacts are not in the original condition as made and are presented as NOT being 100% authentic”.
We always condemn the sale and/or trade of burial items and human remains in all situations, shapes, and forms.
We promote the responsible hunting, selling, trading, and collecting of Native American Artifacts as well as the full documentation, identification, and preservation of these ancient artifacts. We condemn the robbing of Indian burial sites as well as irresponsible pot-holing and other-wise reckless destruction of still valuable archaeological sites.
