Join us for a fascinating presentation on the culture of the Comanche, presented by Jhane Myers. This event is offered as part of the El Paso-based Tom Lea Institute’s "Tom Lea Month," which annually organizes more than a dozen events throughout Texas and New Mexico to celebrate Lea, who lived in Santa Fe for several years. Lea’s Comanche murals in Seymour, TX, will serve as Myers’ departure point for a broader discussion on the Comanche people, history, and culture.
