Sorry.

Tonkawa Indians.

Based out of what later became the hill country around Austin Texas. Here is a link.

Tonkawa Indians, Texas Indians

Nothing about cannibalism.

More research needed!


Aha! Found something. But ritualistic cannibalism only. They liked Camaches.

You run into some issue with nomenclature here (i'm a stickler for some things) You have all mentioned Native American Nations tribes are the level below that. Such as with the Iroquois nation, there are the Mohawk, Onondaga tribes etc. or the Sioux with the Lakota, Dakota, Yanktonai tribes etc.

On that note, however, my favorite native american nation to study and research are the Iroquois. My favorite tribes are the Nauset and the Pokanoket Wampanoag. Massasoit, Metacomet, Wamsutta, Ashawonks, Canonicus and those who allied with or fought the first two generations of settlers are some of the most mysterious and unique figures in American history.

Now you realize the eastern woodlands held the westward expansion for nearly 300 years, and it only took 100 years to blow through the plains, well from Appalachia to California. Joke - , but we are still here and kickin either way, well some of us LOL.

1. Cherokee (I married one)
2. Lakota - loved the culture of the tribe and their plains lifestyle. Crazy Horse and other leaders are fascinating for me to read about.

I feel a degree of interest in, and respect and sympathy for, all the peoples that fall under the modern label of "Native American". That said, the tribal groups that fascinate me the most are those of the eastern half of the country, particularly those that inhabitated states I have also lived in.

I'm not entirely sure why, but I've felt a particular attraction to the Choctaws. I truly do not know where that comes from, but the mere sight or sound of that tribe's names gets my undivided attention.

Perhaps I have Choctaw ancestors

Cherokee, Lakota Sioux, Comanche, Apache, Navajo, Anasazi, Blackfoot, Cheyenne

They're pretty much all my favorites, but these ones stand out.

The Native Americans are simply the coolest people ever in my eyes, dont know how many times i cried as a kid watching these old westerns and finding out the truth of what my fellow white man had done, very sad chapter in history for sure, ive got some old books i might need to dig them out again for a read, all these tribes mentioned i seem to know all of them, and dont forget about the Arapahoes
