Comanche Museum Wants Nothing to Do With Yeagley or "Daughter of Dawn"

While Yeagley seems to be desperately trying to use a film project he bullied (and possibly libeled) his way onto to get recognition from actual Comanches...

It's just not working. The Comanche leadership wants nothing to do with him. It's not just his leading role in a white supremacist documentary in Europe. It's not just his role in threats against Rudy Youngblood and his family, when Youngblood was embraced by Comanches for his accomplishments.

No, Yeagley's "scoring" of the film "Daughter of Dawn" has done nothing except get Comanches to distance themselves from that film:

Read it and weep, Yeagley.



As Chair of the Comanche National Museum Board I can tell you the board has chosen not to be involved with this project.

Yet another example of David Yeagleys' contribution to his Nation.

Good examples of sharing as well as bad examples are a learning experience.

It would have been nice to have been approached O.H.S, and shown this Black and White version to the Comanche Public, then tell the People that you are in the process of scoring it, but let the Comanche People view something which is a part of them.

Oklahoma History Society and Yeagley seem to be holding the film hostage, that is not a nice thing to do, knowing how Indians feel about viewing their own ancestors. Why these people could be upping the price because of this contraversy.

Does anyone have an update on how things are fairing with the Oklahoma Historical Society and Dr. David Yeagley?
