Description

His New Coat There is an oral history passed down from Comanche elders that the red, yellow and blue in the Comanche Nation's flag are derived from the colors prominent in a type of Spanish officer's uniform like the one depicted in this painting. The Spanish officer jackets were prized by Comanche warriors and once attained were worn with pride. The Comanche's established contact with the Spanish both in New Mexico and in what would later become Texas.

Filled with symbolism and meaning, Tippeconnic’s paintings highlight the strength, beauty, and grace of the Comanche past and present. The paintings are rich with history and the unbroken connection the Comanche people have with their roots, but they are not romanticized or stagnant expressions of a bygone era. Rather, Tippeconnic’s art is full of movement, color, and life — a bold statement that Comanche culture is vibrantly alive in the modern world.
