The Comanche Nation Child Support Program logo begins with the traditional Comanche home in mind. Our staff has taken the time to bring a meaningful logo together that coincides with our mission statement and represents who we are. The Comanche Nation Child Support Program is tailored to the way of life as interpreted through this logo:
The tipi was the traditional home of the Comanche people. This, being the center of the logo, represents Comanche way of life as well as being the center to what our focus is within the child support field. The hand prints are left to interpretation as being the hands of family or the community that is involved to support the needs of our children. It may also represent the children themselves who need our voice of advocacy. Parenting can sometimes take the wayside, but by tying that absent parent back to the child, they can keep self-sufficiency and self-respect alive.
Keeping our traditions alive is an important effort for Comanche people. This keeps our culture strong and keeps us focused on who we are. The eagle feathers remind the staff and signify to the people that we will not forget who we serve and to carry out our service with respect to our Comanche culture.
The waterbird is regarded as a religious symbol to the Comanche people. Its feathers, when used in a fan, may carry strong medicine of healing power. Religion was always an important factor in our culture. Prayers in community events are still strong. Acknowledgement of God was never denied His existence. So, this symbol has its place in the logo to represent all life, religion, and healing that broken family bond.
Last, but not least, is our tribal seal. The representative meaning on the Comanche shield is indicative of itself, which represents the people themselves, Numumu - Lords of the Plains. This symbol as a whole is a reminder to the program staff that this is who we represent. We display this seal proudly to show that we are part of a sovereign nation under God.
