Honor The Treaty Powwow

Comanche boy Pease Ross was the only male survivor of the 1860 raid in which Cynthia Ann Parker was recaptured from the tribe. Texas Ranger and soldier Sul Ross found the boy and took him to Waco to live with the Ross family. Offered the opportunity to return to the Comanches, he chose to stay with his adopted family. He eventually married the daughter of a former slave. This tintype photo is one of the oldest photographic images of a Comanche. Source: Lawrence T. Jones III. Photo: 1861.

Declaration of Indian Purpose ◄ Back Next ► Picture 1 of 25 A treaty, in the minds of our people, is an eternal word. Events often make it seem expedient to depart from the pledged word, but we are conscious that the first departure creates a logic for the second departure, until there is nothing left of the word. —Declaration of Indian Purpose
