"Sunflower Journeys" is a documentary television series that airs on KTWU Public Television, Topeka.

Hosted by Chris Hernandez

In 1601, Spanish Explorer Juan de Onate found what some have described as an "Indian City" with an estimated population of around twenty thousand. Historians and archeologist have long puzzled over the location of that city, but in recent years new evidence suggests that the "Lost city of Etzanoa" might have been located near present day Arkansas City. Archeologist Donald Blakeslee talks about that evidence and how it could potentially impact our current beliefs about Native American Cultures. Next, we learn from owner Hayes Kellman about how the Boot Hill distillery in Dodge City uses grain from his farm to distill spirits and make hand sanitizer. Finally, we revisit a story from 2016 about the bridges of Cowley County.
