Comanche Culture

No other group of people has quite the rich and storied culture as that of the Comanche. With renowned chiefs as those of Ten Bears and Quanah Parker, the Comanche have seen significant progress and growth.

Known as the “Lords of the Plains” the Comanche boast a proud and colorful heritage with often seen symbolisms such as the teepee, the North American bison, the horse, moccasins, and the bow & arrow. The bow and arrow in the hands of a skilled warrior often struck fear the hearts of the early western settlers as he gallop full speed atop a strong, proud pony.

Today’s Comanche are just as proud. The Native American powwow is as vibrant today as it was 200 years ago. With each pounding beat of the drum dancers in full regalia dance in poetic and rhythmic fashion. IAMNDN seeks to keep this tradition alive by offering youth classes in the following: boy’s war dance bustle, girls broad cloth dress, boys hand drum and drum stick, and an introduction in Comanche Language.
