Chappybitty/Quassycheeky Pow Wow in Fredericksburg, TX, commemorates the Meusebach treaty of 1847, made between the German Immigration Company (Verein zum Schutze deutsche Einwanderer in Texas) and the Comanche Nation.
The event is in its 21st year and took place May 13-15 behind the Hill Country University Center, across the creek from Fort Martin Scott. According to the Fort Martin Scott Museum Association, the Comanche, Kiowa and Delaware would camp at this site when visiting Fredericksburg and the fort 150 years ago.
I headed out to Fredericksburg to take some photos as well as set out Tanka Wild Stick samples for everyone to try. They were an instant hit. Most comments were that it was nice to actually find a meat snack that "didn't have a bunch of junk in it."
The Chappybitty/Quassycheeky family couldn't have asked for better weather and everyone was friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed the beautiful dancing and costumes.
