    Close up of Quanah Parker (~1845-1911), the Last Comanche chief. Quanah's 2nd wife in 1872 was Weakeah, daughter of Penateka Comanche subchief Yellow Bear (aka Old Bear). Although first espoused to another warrior, she and Quanah eloped, and took several other warriors with them. It was from this small group that the large Quahadi band would form. Yellow Bear pursued the band and eventually Quanah made peace with him. The two bands united, forming the largest force of Comanche Indians. Wikipedia

(Image: A Comanche Village in 1834 by George Catlin) "The Comanches were almost as new to Texas as the Spanish. They came from way up north from northern Colorado. The Comanches were once part of the Shoshone Indians. The Comanche language and the Shoshone language are still almost the same. Bands of Comanches began moving south. By around 1740 they first showed up in the Texas panhandle."
