This isn’t Canadian’s first rodeo. In fact, this summer will be the 126th edition of Canadian’s Fourth of July Rodeo, making it one of the state’s oldest.
About a year after the Second Battle of Adobe Walls and later fighting in the Red River War, Quanah Parker and his band of Comanches surrendered themselves at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in 1875. During the next 35 years, Parker continued to represent his people, and also became known as a rancher, statesman and Native American Church leader.
