This week, thousands of Comanche tribal members across the nation anxiously awaited the day their annual Per Capita money was posted to their bank accounts or delivered in their mailboxes. This year’s distribution date was November 15. With the holidays around the corner, the extra money comes in handy for Comanche families, as they prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whether tribal members use their per cap money to buy gifts, pay bills, buy necessities for their family, or save it for a rainy day, the annual financial distribution helps the local economies where Comanche tribal members live.
The Comanche Nation Youth Program cooked a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the participants at it's annual Thanksgiving Celebration November 15 at the Comanche Nation Complex's Watchetaker Hall. Director, Randi Attocknie Santos, said it is a way to show thanks to all the youth who are in the program. The communities of Cache, Apache, Elgin, and Walters were present at the homemade Thanksgiving feast, with a total of 62 students. Photo by Jolene Schonchin/Comanche Nation PIO-News
