Naiche & his wife Ha-o-zinne. - In 1880, Naiche traveled to Mexico with Geronimo's band, to avoid forced relocation to the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona. They surrendered in 1883 but escaped the reservation in 1885, back into Mexico. They were captured in 1886, and Naiche and others were imprisoned in Fort Marion in St. Augustine, Florida.
Chief Naiche (ca. 1857-1919) was the final hereditary chief of the Chiricahua band of Apache Indians. Naiche's name, which in English means "meddlesome one" or "mischief maker", is alternately spelled Nache, Nachi, or Natchez. He was the youngest son of Cochise. Naiche died on March 16, 1919 in Mescalero, New Mexico.
Cochise, Apache Indian Chief. "When I was young I walked all over this country, east and west, and saw no other people than the Apaches. After many summers I walked again and found another race of people had come to take it. How is it?" From the book "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" by Dee Brown.
TECUMSEH (Estrella Fugaz) (Shawne 1768-1813) "Ninguna tribu puede vender la tierra. ¿No lo hizo todo el Gran Espíritu para el uso de sus hijos? La única salida es que los piel rojas se unan para tener un derecho común e igual en la tierra, como siempre ha sido, porque no se dividió nunca."
Que el sol te traiga nueva energia durante el dia, Que la luna suave te restaure por la noche, Que la lluvia lave todas tus preocupaciones, Que la brisa sople nueva fuerza en tu interior, Que camines suavemente por el mundo y conozcas su belleza todos los dias de tu vida.
"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."
