Texas town to honor last Comanche war chief

Quanah, Texas (AP) May 2011

A northwest Texas town named for the last great Comanche tribal war chief will celebrate his life on the centennial of his death.

The descendants of former Chief Quanah Parker will gather in Quanah, Texas, 76 miles northwest of Wichita Falls, for the Quanah Parker Celebration on June 9-11.

Among the events will be Comanche tribal songs and celebrations and burning of juniper incense sacred to the tribe. The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports that among those scheduled to attend will be 92-year-old Baldwin Parker Jr. of Cache, Okla., the last surviving grandson.

Quanah Parker was the son of Comanche Chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, the daughter of white settlers who was kidnapped by Comanches as a child and raised as a tribe member.
