You would say ¡Bienvenidos a Tejas / Texas! "Tejas/ Texas" is pronounced ['texas].*In standard Spanish, the [x] sound is similar to that in German "ich" or Scottish English "loch".

"Tejas," pronounced "TAY-hoss," is the Spanish word for the American state of Texas."Tejas" has no other meaning in Spanish, although the word "teja" refers to colonial Spanish-style roofing tiles, typically made of terra cotta. Also, in Spanish, "tejado" means roof. This might or might not explain why Spanish-speakers of Mexico originally labeled as "Tejas" the region that eventually became Texas. Once part of Mexico, Texas forms a substantial part of Mexico's geographical "roof."Texas is the Caddo word for friends or allies. This is also why Texas is the "friendship state." Texas is not as many believe a Spanish word. The Caddo Indians' range once included east Texas.

The Tejanis was a Spanish heritage who considers Texas their home.Other tribes fought fiercely against Spanish settlement of Texas.

the Comanche where the main problem for the Spanish to colonize Texas
