I grew up with the knowledge of being related to the Parkers and the Comanche. My grandparents were both part Indian. My grandmother from the Chocktaw nation my grandad from the Comanache.
She was born on the Indian Reservation at Ada Okla.He was born in Miss.
Later moved to Hall and Wise County Texas.
Both spoke the language and were often go betweens for the white and Indian.
I returned to Adobe Walls last weekend and wrote all the names of the Kiowa,Comanche, and Cheyenne Indians who died there.It is about 65 miles feom me.Of course like Wounded Knee that story was written by whites. Quanah was related to both grandparents.
His grand-daughter lives in the same town.She is a cousin.She is active in the activities at Ft Sill Okla.
Quanah was known as the Peacemaker.
