“Join author and anthropologist Daniel Gelo for a talk on his recent book, Comanches and Germans on the Texas Frontier. The book includes the translation of a study of Comanche language by German scholar Heinrich Berghaus. His study was based on data gathered by a young German settler in Texas, Emil Kriewitz, and included a groundbreaking list of Comanche words and their German translations. This fascinating book should not be missed by anyone interested in the cultures, languages, history, and geography of Texas. This talk will shed light on how Comanches and Germans came into contact in Central Texas during the middle of the 19th century.”
