Honor The Treaty of 1847Help To Restore The Rightful Comanche Powwow at Fort Martin Scott
"Isn't it about time for the local landowners to assure our native ancestors and brethren that we still agree to coexist in peace? Is it really that hard to know the right thing to do?
Let's find a way to honor our treaty AND find a proper place to memorialize our Rangers."
~ Jack Holmgreen
Our response: "The Texas Rangers are already properly memorialized at the official Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum at 100 Texas Ranger Tr., Waco, TX 76706 (254-750-8631) which we strongly support. (In fact, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame works with the Comanche Nation on special projects.)
The group responsible for ending Treaty of 1847 Powwow is just a private group that call themselves 'The Former Texas Rangers Association (Foundation)'. They are NOT endorsed by, or affiliated with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, or the Texas Ranger administration.
REPEAT: The party responsible for ending the Treaty of 1847 Powwow at Fort Martin Scott is just a private group that is NOT officially recognized by the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and we encourage everyone to call the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum at 254-750-8631 and ask questions about these public facts."
"I am a member of the Comanche Tribe, I am looking for a print of the treaty and would like to have a copy of the sketch made that day that you have posted on your website. Have you consider selling prints of both?"
~ Austin, Texas
Our response: "Please send us your email so we can respond to your request."
"When my daughter was young, we took her to Fredericksburg and told her the story of the Treaty of 1847. She cut her teeth on the history of that area. Every year we went to the Pow Wow. I can't believe that Fredericksburg is allowing a group like this to call the shots on such an important issue. The Comanche Pow Wow at Fort Martin Scott should be reinstated immediately."

"My GGG Grandfather John O. Meusebach would have been so disappointed if we did not support the Comache Nation. I would like to stand in the fight to stop the Texas Rangers Foundation from building a museum in this area."
~ Mandy Meredith
"I live in Waco, TX, one Ranger museum is enough, they are already represented. The Comanche Nation allowed the white settlers to settle on this land, choosing peace instead of war, where both cultures could live in harmony and in peace, of all the treaties ever made in this country, all were broken except this one. Don't kill the LASTING FRIENDSHIP TREATY let it live,we all need to remember where we come from."
~ Rubin Garcia
"I am an historian who wrote the book, Images of America: Boerne. In my research I discovered a hand drawn picture of the scene, drawn on the day of the Treaty, and I would like to support your efforts by giving you the rights to use this picture."
~ Brent Evans, Boerne, Texas
This amazing sketch was drawn on the day of the historic Meusebach-Comanche Treaty on May 9, 1847 and was graciously donated to this website from the family collection of Juanita Herff Chipman through Brent Evans, author of "Images of America: Boerne" (Acadia Press, 2010).
Juanita Herff Chipman is the Great Great Granddaughter of Dr. Ferdinand Herff, one of the German settlers of Bettina and Tusculum (Boerne). Historian Jefferson Morgenthaler acknowledged that this sketch perfectly matches the description of the event as witnessed by Ferdinand Roemer, who wrote what he saw on that glorious day:
“In the twilight, a number of mounted men appeared before our camp in festive, but most peculiar attire. The faces were painted red and the majority of them wore the peculiar headdress made of buffalo skin with the horns of buffalo attached. In one hand they carried the long lance, painted red, in the other a round shield made of tanned buffalo hide, painted in gaudy colors and decorated with a circle of feathers. Horses were mostly light in color, their heads and tails were painted a carmine red.”
"I am so proud of this treaty, the ONLY treaty that has never been broken - especially because I am 4th generation Texan whose ancestors are of Comanche descent. This is disgraceful if carried through [the stopping of the powwow] - I had planned a trip down there for the Powwow, and as it stands now, I doubt I will come to Fredericksburg again, unless the Powwow goes on as planned. I also have relatives who live there, and I will be informing them of this travesty. PLEASE SHOW RESPECT and restore the Comanche Nation Powwow. I will have faith..."
~ Becky Coury
"I was brought here because Ms. Charlotte McCurtain spoke at a symposium at our school. She spoke from the heart, and I'm glad to show my support in this way against the injustice against the Comanche people."
~ Shannon Sweeney
"I was born and raised with the Comanche tribe in Walters, Oklahoma. I do not want to see my Comanche Brothers and Sisters Heritage faded away by the advancement of so-called intelligent civilized white people. It is the next thing next to genocide."
~ Larry Renegar
"With respect to this project and more, you have my full support. My address in Fredericksburg is PO Box 2269. Please tell me how I might lend further assistance beyond speaking out against the FBG City Council at one of their meetings and publishing a letter in the Fredericksburg Standard, assuming, of course they will accept a paid advertisement in support of your ends and in opposition to the FBG City Council and this cast of characters with the "Former Texas Rangers Foundation".
Beyond good luck to you, I would help push this initiative."
~ Robert Hudson
"In my time in the Army, I have told friends about this story. I'm very proud of it. People are surprised to hear that the powwow still happens. I wonder how many of these council members have roots as deep as I do in Gillespie county. This is a slap in the face to the original pioneers in this area. Disgraceful, spineless, and disgusting are a few words that come to mind. Y'all will have my support in word and deed."
~ Brad Bernhard
My family came here to settle along with the other Germans and due to this treaty they had a stage line that was never robbed due to the help and protection from the Comanche Nation. I am very disgusted at the City Council.
~ Brian Lochte
The Comanche Powwow is the most beautiful, powerful, educational thing I have ever witnessed. The Former Texas Rangers Foundation needs to go elsewhere.
~ Carol Ottmers
News reports about the Former Texas Ranger Association in Fredericksburg and their fundraising efforts have confused the public regarding two long-standing organizations: the Texas Ranger Association Foundation and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, both located in Waco.
The TEXAS RANGER ASSOCIATION FOUNDATION (TRAF) is a nonprofit educational foundation started in 1982. It is overseen by the Texas Rangers and affiliated with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco.
The TEXAS RANGER HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, founded in 1964 in Waco, is the official museum, State Hall of Fame and official State repository of the Texas Rangers. It houses and preserve DPS records and artifacts and hosted a Texas Rangers company headquarters on site for 44 years. It is sanctioned by Texas DPS, the Legislative and the Texas Rangers Division. The current chairman is the former chief of the Texas Rangers; the Chair of the Texas Public Safety Commission is a member of the Board, as are the Director of Texas DPS and the current Chief of the Texas Rangers. The institution is the official representative of Texas DPS for the 2023 Texas Ranger Bicentennial™.
The Former Texas Ranger Association (Foundation), in Fredericksburg, is NOT affiliated with either the Texas Ranger Association Foundation or the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.
For further information contact the Texas Ranger Association Foundation at 104 Texas Ranger Trail, Waco, TX. 76706 (254-752-1001) or the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum at 100 Texas Ranger Tr., Waco, TX 76706 (254-750-8631)
"My family is one of the founding families of Fredericksburg, Tx (Kensing). Also on my dad's side of the family, Rudolph Fischer was taken by the indians, and I and all of my family are related to the Indians, although I am 100 percent German. Why don't you put that Tx Ranger Museum in Austin where it belongs? I had an ancestor, which was that one founder of Fredericksburg and he was a Tx Ranger, he would roll over in his grave if he knew what you people are planning to destroy! Keep this treaty going! "
~ Cory Brandon
Larry Liles wears his cap of support: "Honor the Treaty of 1847!"
Larry was the emcee of the 1997 Memorial Day Weekend Lasting Friendship Powwow in Fredericksburg, Texas, and is the great great-grandson of Chief Horseback, one of the peace treaty signers in 1847.
Please do not break this treaty and build on this ground. Even the advertisement for the Ranger museum I found incredibly insensitive. As a pastor I have often used Fredericksburg as an example of one place that kept their treaty word. Please do not break it now!
~ Rev. Merrie Cardim
Granbury, Texas 76049
I am disgusted by the Fredericksburg City Council's action in cancelling this historic commemoration. They caved in to the demands of the group that wanted to build a Texas Rangers museum in Kerrville -- a plan that people in this area understood was absurd and did not support. I will make sure people I know in the Kerrville-Ingram-Hunt area become aware of your petition and will encourage them to sign it.

~ Wil M. Niedo
The Comanche Powwow at Fort Martin Scott in Fredericksburg has been cancelled by the Fredericksburg City Council because they will not allow it to be held on the Fort Martin Scott property because of a deal they made with a private group located in Fredericksburg who call themselves the 'Former Texas Ranger Association (Foundation)'. This is NOT the same group as the Texas Ranger Association Foundation (TRAF) in Waco which was created in 1982.
The cancellation of the Comanche Powwow at Fort Martin Scott is a great act of disrespect to both the German settlers who founded Fredericksburg and to the Comanche people whom first lived in the surrounding area. These two cultures came together and signed a historic treaty in 1847 to forever live in friendship and trade for the betterment of all future generations.
Because of this treaty, the soldiers at Fort Martin Scott never had to fight a single battle with the Comanche people, who had lived in this area for many years before the Germans arrived, and the treaty was proof that different cultures could find a common ground and live in peace. Many believe that this was the only treaty with Native Americans that was never broken — until 2012, when the Former Texas Rangers Association (Foundation) set up their headquarters in town.
A Word From the Comanche Nation
"On Feb. 16, 2012 the Comanche Business Committee officially endorsed the effort of the Fort Martin Scott Museum Association in their effort of sustaining the history of the 1847 Treaty and culture of the Comanche Nation by their proposed action to memorialize the powwow grounds on the Fort Martin Scott historical site.
Endorsement signers from the Comanche Nation were: Johnny Wauqua, Edward Eschiti, Robert Tippeconnie, Ronald Red Elk, Yonevea Terry, Darrell Kosechequetah, and Robert Komahcheet Jr.
Please sign the petition on this website to reinstate the Comanche Powwow and other cultural events that so many people loved to attend throughout the years."
"I am horrified to hear of this development. The FTRA [Former Texas Rangers Association (Foundation)] has been doing a lot of talking and no building in Kerrville for more than 10 years, and to block this Pow Wow is a slap in the face to the people of Fredericksburg, and indeed every Texan who knows the history of this amazing and unbroken treaty. This is NOT the fault of the Texas Rangers. This IS the fault of some greedy Hill Country people who have been determined for years to gather money for something that obviously not only isn't going to happen but doesn't even need to!"
~ k.Dee Ignatin

A Word From The Fort Martin Scott Museum Association
"We want to be perfectly clear that we are not the 'official' management organization for Fort Martin Scott and that we do not accept any donations for the fort.
Our relationship with the City began before the Former Texas Rangers came to town. We were given the keys to the fort on a handshake and a man’s word. That used to be a contract or a treaty in the State of Texas.
We returned the keys to the fort because we are opposed to the construction of the Former Texas Ranger Heritage Center which will utterly destroy this historic site. It is our mission to preserve it. We do not claim anything that is not ours and we will not surrender our freedom and heritage.
We demand that the Former Texas Rangers find some other location. We insist that the Comanche Pow Wow returns to this fort to honor our eternal peace treaty.
This was never a 'ranger fort' and never should be."
~ Fort Martin Scott Museum Association
The Treaty of 1847
Fort Martin Scott, Fredericksburg, TX — A small faction within the Former Texas Rangers Association (Foundation) are attempting to collect funds for the construction of a "Texas Rangers Heritage Center" at Fort Martin Scott in Fredericksburg. This group has already tried for 10 years to build their dream in nearby Kerrville but were unsuccessful and now for the past 2 years they have been trying the same idea right here in Fredericksburg.
The Former Texas Rangers Association (Foundation) is a private group NOT endorsed by, or affiliated with:
- the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS),
- the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, or
- the Texas Legislature
- the Texas Ranger administration
Furthermore, they do NOT own any part of the land at Fort Martin Scott.
Here are a few publicly available facts that everyone should be aware of:
The proposed Fredericksburg "Texas Ranger Heritage Center" is NOT a project that is endorsed by, or affiliated with, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Texas Rangers, or the Texas Legislature. The Texas DPS and the Texas Rangers support the existing Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, the official Museum, Hall of Fame, and Repository of the Texas Rangers in Waco, Texas. (See www.texasranger.org). These are public facts that anyone can check.
Attempting to open another museum dedicated to the Texas Rangers will duplicate efforts already provided for the past 50 years at the official Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco. Duplication is a huge waste of money and resources and leads to public confusion and degrading of a service or product. The groups' argument that their proposed museum will be different than the official museum in Waco by being "Disneyland-like" is a ludicrous idea that tarnishes the symbol of the Texas Rangers and would be akin to turning the Alamo into a lively amusement park.
In 2014 the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate its 50th anniversary of continued service in Waco, Texas. On June 7, 2012 they dedicated the new Tobin and Anne Armstrong Texas Ranger Research Center, which holds historic records and documents dating back to 189 years ago when the Texas Ranger service was formed. Here are the facts about the Official Museum of the Texas Rangers, the Official Hall of Fame of the Texas Rangers, and the Official Repository (all located in Waco):
The cost to build their proposed facility is astronomical. Their proposed "Texas Rangers Heritage Center" has been announced as a 41,000 sq. ft. facility, which roughly puts the amount required to build it between $9 to $16 million, or $300 to $400 sq. ft. Plus, since they are claiming it be full of "interactive exhibits" then you can easily add additional expenses of $600 to $900 sq. ft. on top of that. They cannot obtain state funding because the land at Fort Martin Scott is an National Historic Site, which means it is subject to Federal approval which will never happen.
It is not realistic for this proposed museum to operate professionally without thorough planning and revenues aside from admissions and gift shop sales. A museum of the proposed scale cannot run on volunteers. Here are some sample costs of keeping the doors of a museum open:
Information we requested from the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame in Waco indicates that it has a base operating budget of $1.3M to which the City of Waco provides an annual subsidy and at least an extra half-million dollars in legal, maintenance and professional services each year. This is regarded as a conservative budget for a museum of this size.
Anyone with some startup money can build a museum. Remember back during our nation's bicentennial celebration in 1976 when numerous museums were started in small towns everywhere? Despite the patriotic enthusiasm, within a short time many had closed their doors due to lack of business planning and the high cost of operating a museum. Emotion and enthusiasm were not enough to compensate for poor planning and unrealistic expectations.
Let's take a moment to look even more into the financial facts. Fredericksburg is a town of about 10,000 people and is not located close to any major interstate. Do you think our city has the appropriate location as well as the funding to be a trustee and sponsor of this proposed 41,000 sq. ft. facility?
The city of Waco boasts a population of 125,000. It has been the trustee and sponsor of Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum (about a 60,000+ sq. ft. facility) for almost 50 years. Despite gossip circulating, the museum in Waco is a service, it is NOT a “cash cow” making “millions of dollars”. Waco is located off a main interstate connecting San Antonio and Austin to DFW and the Official Texas Ranger Museum attracts more than 70,000 visitors per year. Without the benefit of the support from the city of Waco, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum would need an endowment of about $30 million. They charge $7 as an adult entry fee—the actual cost per visitor is about $18. This is typical for most museums across the country. History museums are not for-profit theme parks, they are preservation and historical centers.
The cold, hard, financial bottom line is this: A museum cannot charge enough for an entry fee and reap enough profits from a gift shop to open it's doors every day — it needs either:
Before investing in any museum, it is best to look at the financial planning and history to date of this proposed project and the group behind it. Contact the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame in Waco and the Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg and ask questions about their budget, operations and staffing:
- What kind of a construction, exhibits and operating budget is realistic?
- Does the Texas Ranger administration, whom the museum is supposed to honor, actively support this effort?
- Why didn't the museum work in Kerrville after 10 years and promises to Kerrville?
Meanwhile, the decision of a select few and the resulting action of the Fredericksburg City Officials have halted cultural activities at Fort Martin Scott. This action is dishonoring the people who made the historic treaty possible and is preventing future generations from learning about this unique and amazing event.

"I enjoyed seeing the Centennial photo. Chief Baldwin Parker, as many know, was Quanah Parker's son. My family in Anderson County, Texas intermarried with the Parker's (Cynthia Ann's family). I am of Choctaw/Chickasaw and Cherokee descent through a great-grandmother and great-grandfather, among others. I am also descended from a full-blood German great-grandmother. I have family at Fredericksburg. We are NOT happy! I enjoyed attending the Powwow and what it stood for. I cannot express my disappointment enough in the Fredericksburg officials' decision. We have a Texas Ranger Museum in Waco. They should built it in Austin. They want to put it in Fredericksburg because the tourist economy brings in $$$. Once again, kick the 'Americans' to the curb."
~ "Not Happy Nana"
The wind blew dust over the empty fairgrounds of the abandoned fort, while the sound of drums, singing, and celebration lay silent.
(Comanche Tribal group photograph not available for this reason: The Comanche Powwow has been prohibited by the Fredericksburg City Council.)
What does the petition stand for?
1. Honor The 150 year old treaty of friendship between the Comanche Nation and the German Settlers by restoring the Comanche Powwow
2. Stop the Former Texas Rangers Foundation from building their own museum on Fort Martin Scott property
3. Allow cultural and historical events to be held at Fort Martin Scott
The Comanche Nation thanks you!
I would like to thank everyone for signing the “Honor the Treaty” petition and for your comments about the importance of honoring the 1847 Treaty between the German settlers of Fredericksburg and the Comanches.
For decades before the signing of the 1847 Treaty, my ancestors (Comanches) traveled through Texas to Mexico. Passage to Mexico was near the then small town of Fredericksburg, Texas. My great grandmother, Takey yetchy (Stands and Speaks) was born during one of the journeys to Mexico. Therefore the 1847 Treaty has a strong significance to my Comanche family – Chappabitty/Quassycheeky.
Our family’s annual powwow celebrates the birthplace of Takey yetchy and the Treaty. We just held our twelfth annual family powwow on May 4th, 2013. This year’s powwow was a traditional powwow with no competitive dancing, only intertribal. We were pleased with the turnout.
We would like to thank all those that attended, in particular, the German consulate representatives. We would also like to thank the volunteers and supporters that donated their time to make the powwow a success.
A special thanks to the family that donated their building for the powwow. That was a gracious donation that we will never forget. If it wasn’t for the donated use of the building we would not have been able to have the powwow. This is because the old powwow grounds on the historical site of Fort Martin Scott have been made unavailable to the Chappabitty/Quassycheeky family thru actions of the Fredericksburg Mayor and city council.
These actions of support by the volunteers and those individuals that donated represent the true meaning of the Treaty – hospitality and kindness between the German founders of Fredericksburg and the Comanches.
It is these acts of kindness that encourages our family during the tough times to continue to share our heritage and tradition to those citizens of Fredericksburg that appreciate it. We plan on continuing to have our annual powwow, with competitive dancing, a year from now. In addition we plan on having an all gourd dance powwow in the fall time.
Again, UHDUH!! (Thank you)
"One of the main reasons that our family moved our annual powwow some 400 miles away to Fredericksburg [from the reservation in Oklahoma], was because of the birthplace of my great grandmother – Takey Yetchy (Stands and Speaks) and because of the 1847 Treaty between the Comanches and the German settlers of Fredericksburg."
"How can your city honor the treaty, when they are allowing the Texas Rangers to build a museum on this historical site? I concur with the tribal official I spoke with this morning, who stated that as Comanches we know that the primary reason the Texas Rangers were created was to get rid of the Comanches."
— Charlotte McCurtain, Comanche Nation Powwow Leader
