Description
The Chairman is an idealized version of an individual who carries himself with the dignity and confidence of a tribal chairman. While the man depicted is not an actual tribal chairman from the past or present, it reflects a man with the same great responsibility. Wearing an eagle feather bonnet, this chairman is clearly qualified for the job and exudes confidence as he buttons his coat before heading into a general council meeting. His power and strength exemplify the Comanche people as a living contemporary culture firmly rooted in their traditions while thriving in their modern environs.

Filled with symbolism and meaning, Tippeconnic’s paintings highlight the strength, beauty, and grace of the Comanche past and present. The paintings are rich with history and the unbroken connection the Comanche people have with their roots, but they are not romanticized or stagnant expressions of a bygone era. Rather, Tippeconnic’s art is full of movement, color, and life — a bold statement that Comanche culture is vibrantly alive in the modern world.
