This is a listing of the Great Comanche Chiefs (Paraiboo).

This is by no means a complete list and is a work in progess. The first documentation where the people appear are found in documents penned by the Mexicans in the early 1700's. Some of the names listed are in the Spanish tongue, and also in the Numu Language followed by the English translation. The spelling of the names are the ones listed in various literature and treaties. The dates listed are the years that these names were noted, many of these Paraiboo led the people of the different bands for many years.
