If you were not at the Comanche Museum on Saturday you missed it! The day started with Mayor Mary Boyd signing the proclamation creating Quanah Parker Day in Comanche, Texas. Folks drifted into the museum through the day to see the display of Quanah Parker memorabilia. Lee White, a local Native American, provided wonderful items acquired through the years from the Quanah Parker estate and family members. There were beautiful beaded moccasins, medicine man tools, amulets, articles of clothing, all of it fascinating to see. The museum is so grateful to Lee White’s willingness to share his collection on this day. Rod Corpus, a Comanche Native Lord of the Southern Plains Representative presented the Comanche County Historical Museum with a beautiful Comanche Nation Flag. Rod spent the day visiting and sharing stories of his culture and making friends of Comanche citizens. Board members of the Museum were proud to host the first ever Quanah Parker Day at the Comanche County Historical Museum and look forward to hosting other upcoming events for their friends and supporters.
