Geronimo

Geronimo (June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a prominent leader of the Bedonkohe Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars. "Geronimo" was the name given to him during a battle with Mexican soldiers. His Chiricahua name is often rendered as Goyathlay or Goyahkla in English.

Geronimo as a younger man. A deadly warrior. Elsewhere called the greatest cavalry soldier to ever live. Ten thousand united warriors and repeating rifles and the history of the USA would have had a very different outcome.

Geronimo b. 1829 ... look closely - see his face book? I guarantee that look comes as the result of another 'Federal Control the People Program' that was once believed to be "right" just because it was the law of the land. Is there a pattern here? BTW - has anyone out there (besides me) ever interviewed a Native American as to how they feel about being put on a Federal Health Care Program? They have over 150 Years of experience with the Feds Health Care System (IHS).

"Geronimo is said to have had magical powers. He could see into the future, walk without creating footprints and even hold off the dawn to protect his own. This Apache Indian warrior and his band of 37 followers defied federal authority for more than 25 years."
