At the age of 60, Hernandez was appointed by the San Antonio Council to the highest position as Native American.

“I’m Lipan Apache. I knew they were looking for a new chief. They asked if I wanted responsibility and I accepted it,” Hernandez said. .. “I’m in charge of five regions in Texas: North, South, West, East, and Central. It’s an honor. It’s an honor to be a Native American.”

The former chief was Ignacio de la Vega. He died of COVID-19 in July 2020.

“Like (DeLa Vega), I’ll be the chief until I die,” Hernandez said. “I am the first chief to represent our region.”

Hernandez has lived in Alice for over 50 years and has had cowherds, businessmen and oilfield men for over 130 years since Alice’s existence. I have never been there. People, he said.
