The Wendish Texans

The Wendish Texas
by Syvia Ann Grider

The Institute of Texan Cultures has produced numerous books and exhibits about the various ethnic groups in the state, and The Institute’s annual Texas Folklife Festival further shows evidence of cultural diversity to hundreds of thousands of visitors. But, of all the ethnic groups represented, the Wends are probably the most obscure.

The Wendish Texans will help answer queries about this unique Texas group. Emphasis here is on the cultural attributes of the group rather than on outstanding individuals of Wendish descent. Other studies and primary sources are listed in the bibliography.
