    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.

    1915 Red Fox James, a Blackfoot Indian, rode horseback from state to state seeking approval for a day to honor Indians. On Dec. 14, 1915, he presented the endorsements of 24 state governments at the White House. There is no record, however, of such a national day being proclaimed. (Library of Congress)
