Quanah Parker, the son of a war chief and a white captive, the first and only principal chief of the Comanche Nation. And one of the last of the wild Comanche to finally surrender. He spent his entire early life preparing for and engaging in war, raiding at will and striking fear into the hearts of his enemies. Later he’d walk the path of his mother’s people, growing rich, at times,  and successfully lobbying and negotiating on behalf of his beloved Comanche. What was it that make Quanah both a skilled fighter and effective leader? What compelled his people to not only follow him on the warpath, but also the path of progress? Join me as we delve deep on this topic on this newest episode of Bloody Beaver Podcast.
