Storyboard Text

  • Hello! My name is Quanah Parker. I am 25 years old and a Comanche Chief. Let me show you what is going on right now.
  • I, however, didn't sign. I decided to fight against the US to protect our land.
  • The Americans offered us land, and some of us signed and agreed to stop the raids on Anglo territory.
  • We are willing to give you specific territory. We will provide food and supplies. All you have to do is sign here .
  • Even tough a lot of chiefs signed the treaty, Satanta, the most famous Kiowa chief, did not. He declared west Texas territory of the Kiowas and Comanches.
  • My mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, was a Anglo American that was captured by the Comanches when she was a baby.
  • For 10 years after I became chief, I tried to stop the spread of Anglo American settlements
  • Eventually, we were all forced onto the reservation.
