Well, bless your heart! We won’t actually cause you any harm. We’re too polite for that, but you have to decide if you’re in or if you’re out. We’ll take you in and show you the ropes, but you have to want it. Being Texan starts with attitude ‑ and a positive one at that. By taking the test, you’ve shown initiative. Well-done! Now brush up on the history of Texas’ incredible people and places, and we’ll gladly teach you a few things over barbecue and a longneck.

Texan in Training

Maybe you’re a native who took “being Texan” for granted. (Gasp!). We forgive you, but it’s time to count your blessings and get on board. Or, maybe you weren’t born here, but you got here as quickly as you could. We embrace you as our own. I mean, after all, Dairy Queen started in Illinois, but we hold it dearly to our hearts as if it’s one of our own. (Some of you just now learned that it isn’t native.) Either way, you both have the right attitude and proudly call Texas home. You’re polite and you eat, drink, and walk like the natives. You never met a stranger. You love the diversity of the state’s landscape and its people. You think big, you work hard, and you play hard. You don’t just want to be a Texan, you were born to be a Texan. Claim your birthright.

True Texan

You are Texas, through and through, with roots deep in the heart of Lone Star State! You’re rightfully proud of your Texas heritage, and you wear it like a badge wherever you go. You’re polite and respectful ‑ “yes sir” and “yes ma’am”, included ‑ because your momma raised you right, and you care about how you reflect the Texas mystique. You don’t just talk big, you can back it up. As they say, it’s not bragging if it’s true.

You’re in the ranks with Willie Nelson, armadillos, and Friday Night football. You have sweet iced tea running through your veins. And it wouldn’t surprise us, in the least, if you came out of the womb with a hearty “Howdy, y'all!”
