A Lecture by Lance Tahmahkera
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Lance Tahmahkera has been with Texas Health Harris Methodist Fort Worth for the past 43 years and is currently, the Imaging Department Manager at TH Harris Methodist Outpatient Center – Burleson. He is a Great-Great Grandson of Comanche Chief, Quanah Parker. With his parents staying close to the Comanche traditions and culture, much of his youth was spent at pow-wows learning family stories about ancestors and the tribal ways. He’s been asked to share those stories with various schools/universities, historical groups and organizations. The stories shared vary from the origins of the tribe, life on the plains and reservation, Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker to current day events. Also shared are children stories that were passed down through the family.
