Episode 12: Tonkawa Cannibalism: Fact vs. Fiction - Interview with Blane Conklin






I interview Blane Conklin with the Round Rock Historical Preservation Commission. We talk about his role in getting the Tonkawa honored as an official Local Legend in the city of Round Rock after decades of sensationalized misinformation about cannibalism prevented acknowledgement of their rightful place in Texas history.
If you want to learn more about what the Tonkawa Tribe are currently doing, you can follow them on their website. http://www.tonkawatribe.com/

  2. I'm glad that Round Rock took the effort to honor the Tonkawa though the research that Blane did. In the broadcast you talk about reading his essay, which I assume is different than the new Tonkawa description on the Round Rock city website, which also has a lot of references. Do you have a link to the essay?
