San Carlos honors Geronimo’s courage, spirituality and intellect

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

The San Carlos Apache Tribe will hold a series of special events honoring the 100th Anniversary of distinguished Apache leader Geronimo “Goyaale’” who was born on June 16, 1829 and died on February 17, 1909.

Geronimo was a war leader of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades. One may question why the San Carlos Apache Tribe is initiating the honoring of Geronimo?

After all, he was not a San Carlos Apache. Chairman Wendsler Nosie and the Tribal Council know that leadership is taking on a challenge in order to make what could be a negative into a positive.
