Oldest Living Comanche Turns 100

According to the Native American Times, the oldest living Comanche will turn 100 on February 10.

Josephine Myers-Wapp was born in Apache, Oklahoma in 1912 when the Sooner State was 4 years old.

She started teaching Native American traditional arts and culture in 1963 at the Institute of American Indian Arts. She retired 10 years later to focus on finger weaving.

In 2009, an exhibit titled The Artistic Legacy of Josephine Myers-Wapp: The Weaving of Stories and Tradition was featured in the East Gallery of the Capitol, which is managed by the Oklahoma Arts Council.

The council called her an “artist, educator, and specialist in Native American traditional art.”
