I agree with your If statement, Spike. But the original post also contained
the statement that the Karankawa people had been exterminated. Thus, any
descendents living today wouldn't actually be Karankawas, though they'd have
genes passed down through the Karankawas. (this is the sort of discussion I
often get into with my teenaged daughter, who won't let me get away with ANY
inconsistency! :-)
