Beginning Saturday, June 25, 2016, the Republic of Texas Museum will host a seven-week exhibit featuring Quanah Parker, who was the last Chief of the Comanches and never lost a battle to the white man. His tribe roamed over the area where the community of Pampa is located. He was never captured by the Army, but decided to surrender and lead his tribe into the white man’s culture, only when he saw that there was no alternative. His was the last tribe in the Staked Plains to join the reservation system.

The exhibit kicks off with an open house at the Republic of Texas Museum (10 East Anderson Lane in Austin) on Saturday, June 25 from noon to 4pm, with a program at 2pm.

The exhibit will then run every Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 3pm until Friday, August 12. Scout merit badge days will be held on Monday, July 18 and Monday, July 25 – reservations required.

Admission is as follows:

* Adults: $5

* Seniors: $3

* Students/Teachers/DRT Members: $2
