Quanah Parker was appointed Chief of the Comanche Nation by the federal government. However, he was never officially elected by members of the tribe, becoming a primary emissary for the tribe and the government in negotiations following the tribe's surrender in the Red River War in 1909 caused by overhunting of Bison, which was the primary sustenance for tribe members who were suffering from starvation and harsh living conditions. Parker became a successful cattle rancher in civilian life, and following his death in 1911, the title of chief was retired and replaced by chairman, which led to him being referred to as the "Last Chief of the Comanche."
The Comanche tribe was one of the largest in the American Southwest. As migration began to spread west during the nineteenthcentury, clashes between American settlers and indigenous peoples caused considerable concern for the federal government. Parker's legacy remains an enduring part of the region, and his name is found in numerous cities and highway systems that bear reference to his name in Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas. Parker became a Comanche warrior in the 1860s and quickly rose to prominence for his bravery and commitment.
This iconic photograph captures Parker's legacy and tenacious spirit in his later days and remains an enduring piece of American Indigenous and photographic history. As modern culture continues to explore the history of Indigenous communities, Parker's influence and perspective continue to help inform historians about the development of these communities and their heritage.
