Has anyone got to talk To the elderly gentlemen yet?
I was in Broken Bow yesterday and went by the nursing home. I am saddened to say that my friend and historian was not able to communicate as he used to. He did give me the name of a lady that could give the history of Bok Tuklo and told me where she lived which was out in the country. I went to her house and it appeared that she was at home but I could never get anyone to the door. I did talk with a younger Indian man who said that his mother went to school there. Apparently my earlier informant was not correct in the information that she gave. This gentleman said directions to get there was take 3/7 west from Broken Bow to the Y known as Steel's Junction. Take the left that goes to Golden. Landmarks were the Oak Hill Store and Watson Cemetery. Just past the Watson Cemetery there is a "road" that turns left which does now have a gate across the road. That road takes you to the Bok Tuklo site and ended there. He said that it had an "Indian court house" and a school. The last time he saw it there were only small parts of concrete foundations from the buildings. I will keep trying to talk to the woman. Hope this helps.

I forgot to mention that the man that I talked to had never heard the term "blue springs" associated with Bok Tuklo, however, he was only recalling things that he had heard his mother say.

I was able to contact the lady mentioned above by phone. She was not able to tell me anything other than she had heard of Bok Tuklo but did not know any history on it. I don't know anyone else to ask. I'm sure there are other historians in the area. Maybe someone else knows one to ask. If you find out anything on it I would like to know about it also. There is an Indian church near that location. That might be a place to start with some of its members. Deed records start in 1907. You might glean some information from the deeds.

Try contacting the Broken Bow library and see if they have any info on what you seek. There is usually a historical society an a section on the history of the county there located in the library.
