Quanah Parker Day was designated by the Texas legislature and governor in 2019 to be celebrated on the second Saturday in September for 10 years to honor the life of the iconic Comanche leader as a major figure in Texas history. The inaugural Quanah Parker Day was celebrated September 14, 2019, in celebrations across the state. My Comancheria Institute has developed a website (quanahparkerday.com) with information about Cynthia Ann Parker and her son Quanah Parker, the last chief of the tribe.
The key to My Comancheria Institute is our local chapters that meet regularly -- weekly or monthly -- with scheduled programs for study and discussion. Our speaker's bureau provides subject specialists, academics, and independent scholars for presentations and discussions. Many local history museums are hosting chapters in their communities.
Chapters are forming now. If you are interested in helping, please contact us.
My Comancheria Institute is developing educational curriculum for children, youth, and adults to be used by our local chapters.
In 2018, we filmed a number of interviews with descendants of Quanah Parker, as well as others. These are in the editing stage. Filming is continuing.
