The Rise And Fall Of The Comanche 'Empire' Quanah Parker, considered the greatest Comanche chief, was the son of Cynthia Ann Parker, a white pioneer woman kidnapped by a raiding party when she was. Quanah Parker (Comanche kwana, "smell, odor") (c.

The name Comanche is derived from a Ute word meaning ‘anyone who wants to fight me all the time.’ They were one of the first tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish.

THE DEFEAT OF THE COMANCHES in the year I am writing this letter in the old home of Captain Sebastian Martin, at Villita, Rio Arriba County, which is occupied at present by some of his descendants and is in an excellent state of preservation.

This is the very spot in which the said Captain Martin pitched his tent many years ago. The Comanche War. The Comanches had commanded the high plains of Central and West Texas for more than a century and waged continuous warfare against white encroachment.

President Lamar was determined to end the Comanche menace and clear the way for safe white settlement on the edges of the Texas frontier.

The Comanche were probably the most hated of all the tribes. A hard people in a hard land, they fought settlers with guerilla type warfare, and practiced hideous tortures on their enemies. They did this with other tribes, they did this with Mexicans, and when the white men came, they used these fearsome tools to try to save themselves.

By then, their Comanche friends had been sent to the reservation, so there was no way the former captives could go back to the roving life they had known with them.

The children did not seem angry at the Comanches, although the Comanches killed some of the children’s families, and committed atrocities in front of them. Every Comanche wants to avenge the Courthouse fight. Out of this sense of anger and vengefulness, Comanche warriors mount the greatest raid in their history.
