Comanche chief "Ee-shah-ko-nee" (the bow and quiver). While traveling through a Comanche encampment north of the Red River in the 1830s, artist George Catlin painted the village chief, who he described as a "mild and pleasant looking gentleman…dressed in a very humble manner." For adornment, he wore "a couple of beautiful shells in his ears" and a boar's tusk attached to a cord around his neck. From Catlin 1926.
