Quanah & Cynthia Ann Parker Exhibit

Tuesday, June 10

A pictorial exhibit chronicling the life of the Quahadi chief Comanche Native American tribe.

Quanah Parker (1845-1911) was from the Noconis band, meaning wanderers or travelers, of the Comanche tribe, who emerged as a dominant figure in Native American history following the Comanches' final defeat.  He was one of the last Comanche chiefs and was appointed by the United States as principal chief of the entire Indian Territory nation.

He was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, an English-American who had been kidnapped at the age of nine and assimilated into the tribe.

Quanah Parker went on to lead his people on the reservation where he rose to prominence as a wealthy rancher and influential leader in Comanche and European American society. 

The exhibit will be on display in the Government Center lobby through June before moving to the Cedar Hill Museum of History's new location at 607 Cedar Street in Historic Downtown in July,
