Regarding the females, as remarkable as the unusual height of the males was considered, Kelly F. Himmel writes in The Conquest of the Karankawas and the Tonkawas: 1821-1859, page 20: ”Physically, the Karankawa men were taller than most American Indians, and they were considered handsome by European standards. The women were short and stocky.”
Mrs. Alice W. Oliver reported in 1888 that ”The women were rarely ornamented in any way, were generally plain, short of stature, stout and usually disagreeable looking and exceedingly dirty, as were also the men.”
