Peta died while defending the encampment against the Texas Rangers.
Let's raid the settlers!!

Quanah and his followers were forced to take action before the buffalo hunters do something. Quanah Parker decided to attack a defending post at the adobe walls. But, the defenders had the advantage of having buffalo guns. As a result, the plan failed. Numerous of Indians dies, and Paker was wounded.
After the battle of the Able walls, 15 Indians died. There were a lot of Indians that were injured including Parker. They were beaten and unorganized.
