One of the most fascinating people in U.S. history was Quanah Parker, the last chief of the American Indian tribe, the Comanche. He was the son of a Comanche warrior and a white woman who had been captured by the Indians. Parker was a fierce warrior until 1875 when he led his people to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and took on a new, peaceful life. As VOA's Greg Flakus reports from Cache, Oklahoma, Quanah's image remains strong among his people, but part of his heritage is in danger of disappearing.
