Quanah Parker


Last of the great Comanche chiefs, Quanah fought the white man when it served the purpose of his people, but he took up the ways of the white man when that seemed in their best interest. He was born to Comanche warrior Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, a white girl taken captive by Comanches in 1836. Quanah became chief of the Quahadi Comanches and was never defeated militarily.
