The Comanche Tribe
The Comanche Tribe
A brief Native American documentary about the Comanche people. The Comanches played a crucial role in the history of North America. They were a nomadic tribe, fierce in warfare and had no equals when it comes to horsemanship. Known for having many native tribes as enemies, for almost 200 years they fought with Spain, Mexico and the US. Comanche raids were famous and very feared at that time. Their territory was known as Comancheria. It spread across New Mexico, west Texas and nearby areas.

At the height of their power it is estimated the Comanche tribe counted between 20 000 and 40 000 members. The most famous Comanche was Quanah Parker. He’s known as the last free Comanche chief who surrendered last to US authorities.
