High Noon Talk: Tonkawa Texts
Discover why the Tonkawa are one of the most unique cultures of Texas.
High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture.
Although tribal traditions survive among the Tonkawa people, the Tonkawa language has been extinct for more than 75 years. Much of what is known about Tonkawa—an “isolate” language, related to no others—comes to us through the stories collected and translated in Tonkawa Texts. Join author Dr. Thomas Wier for a talk on the language it preserves and the stories it tells.
Program is FREE to the public.
