El Paso Museum of Archaeology set to Open new Exhibit Saturday

The El Paso Museum of Archaeology invites the public to view a new exhibit titled Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker: A Woman OF Two Worlds and a Man IN Two Worlds that opens Saturday, December 10.

Cynthia Ann Parker is the best-known pioneer women to be captured by Native Americans in the Southwest. She was captured as a child after her settlement was massacred by a Comanche war band. She was adopted by the Comanche and lived with them for 24 years. She married a Comanche chieftain and had three children, including Quanah Parker.

This exhibition features rarely seen photos of Quanah Parker and his mother Cynthia Ann Parker. Hacker’s presentation is made possible through a grant form Humanities Texas, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

As part of this exhibit, on Saturday, December 10, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Museum will host a lecture and book signing by Margaret Schmidt Hacker, author of Cynthia Ann Parker: The Life and The Legend and Director of Archival Operations at the National Archives.

The exhibit runs through January 27, 2017. Admission to the museum and the lecture is free. For more information call the Museum of Archaeology at (915) 755-4332
