Description
Quahada Comanche presents another warrior on horseback, and uses Comanche symbols from different historical eras. The snake painted on the arm of this young rider immediately identifies him as Comanche since they originated as Shoshone people who lived near the Snake River. The design on the headdress is from the 20th century and today appears (although in different colors) on the Comanche seal and flag. Yellow is the dominant color and the piece and is symbolic of the high plains the Quahada band called home.

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.
