Are there any Israelite prophets of God alive today?

There are no Israelite prophets of God alive today. Prophecy ended about 2,400 years ago and Malachi was the last Jewish prophet.

After the time of the First Destruction, God's presence was no longer felt as clearly as before (see Deuteronomy 31:17-18); and nor is exile conducive to prophecy (Mechilta, parshat Bo). At that time, the last of the prophets realized that prophecy would soon cease.

Since then, no Jewish sage has ever claimed prophecy. Moreover, the Talmud (Bava Bathra 12b) states that since the time of the Destruction, "prophecy" has been given only to fools.

How did the comanche tribe dress?

Historically the Comanche were part of the Northern Shoshone so the two groups are very closely related.

Men originally wore breechclouts with knee-length flaps front and rear, tight leggings gartered below the knee with triangular flaps often painted blue and no shirts. From around 1820 they began to wear shirts painted yellow or green, or a combination of the two colours. All of these items were made of deer, antelope or mountain sheep skins tanned very soft and decorated with long, twisted fringes (these long fringes are a tribal distinction among the Comanche and Kiowa).

Women originally wore a knee-length skirt sewn up each side and fringed at seams and hem. Over this was a poncho-like top made from one deer skin with a narrow slit opening for the head creating a high straight neckline. Later a three-skin dress was adopted, often painted lemon or buff and with long fringes.

Moccasins had rawhide soles and large ankle flaps; the uppers were painted rather than beaded and had long fringes at heels and along the front seam. Women combined short leggings and moccasins to make a type of boot, painted and sometime with silver disks down the side.

Warm winter robes were made of buffalo, bear, wolf or coyote furs.

Women wore their hair long and parted in the middle - like many native groups they painted the parting red. Men wore their hair loose or braided, the braids wrapped in otter fur and the parting painted white, red or yellow. Comanche warriors often wore a small round piece of white shell attached to the front of the hair so it sat at the front of the parting.

Native American Languages

What languages are spoken by Comanche Indians?

They spoke the Comanche language, one of the Uto-Aztecan family of languages closely related to Shoshone. Comanche is today close to extinction.

A few words in Comanche are:

  • puuku.....................horse
  • tsa-wo'ne...............to scratch
  • wasape'..................a bear
  • pihnaa'...................sugar
  • pa-kwabi................to swim
  • paa.........................water
  • noha.......................nearly
  • nai'bi.......................a young woman
  • meeku....................now
  • kwasu'u..................dress, coat, shirt
  • kwasi-naboo'..........snake
  • kuyunii'...................turkey

Answer:

The Comanche language is correctly called numu tekwapu(where the u is a vague vowel sound). This is classed as a Uto-Aztecan language, distantly related to Nahuatl (the Aztec language) but definitely not the same; it is much more closely related to Shoshone and Ute.

To illustrate the connections and differences, here are the numeral words in some of those languages:

Number.................Comanche....................Shoshone........................Nahuatl

1............................ sumu.............................semme...........................ce

2............................wahaatu.........................wahatewe.......................ome

3.............................pahiitu............................bahaitee'........................yei

4.............................hayarokweetu.................watsewite'.....................nahui

5.............................mo?obetu.......................managite........................macuilli

6.............................naabaitu.........................naafaite..........................chicuace

7.............................taatsukwitu....................daatsewite......................chicome

8.............................namewatsukwitu............nawiwatsewite................chicuei

9.............................wumhinatu.....................seemonowemihyande.....chicunahui

10...........................suumaru........................seemoote.......................mahtlactli
