Comanche migration

The Comanche Indians are believed to have migrated from northwestern Colorado/southern Wyoming to the Southern Great Plains late in the 17th century. And some likely did so through Western Colorado.

Comanche Horsemen

George Catlin produced this painting in the 1830s, showing the skill of Comanche horsemen

However, archaeologists and historians are still trying to determine exactly how and when the migration occurred.

I discussed some of the most recent research in the history column here.
