Road Trip Travel to a new camp could be slow moving and take days as the pace of travel was determined for the safety of the elderly, women, and children. The elderly and some of the children would sit comfortably on a travois (a sled pulled by a horse), while others traveled on horses that were very gentle. The chief was always interested in the people traveling harmoniously, and he called for frequent breaks to rest the horses and themselves. These periods of rest gave everyone time to relax and renew their spirit and the children time to run about and play.

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.
