Title: Geronimo leader of the Chiricahua Apache tribe

Description: Apache leader Geronimo (Goyaale; "One Who Yawns" 1829-1909) stands in front of his troop of fellow Native Americans; Geronimo was the ruthless self-styled leader and medicine man of the Chiricahua Apache tribe , who led several revolts (he was thought by many Apaches in his time to be a renegade who refused to accept the peace treaty of Cochise) and made many bloody raids in Mexico and in the American southwest where he committed many massacres of innocent men, women and children with a band of Chiricahua Apaches never numbering more than thirty or forty braves; he was considered by military leaders of the U.S. Cavalry to be fiercest Indian opponent of the Old West, certainly the most merciless, and it is remarkable that a man with such a vicious, brutal if not bestial and murderous nature survived eighty years of life, participating in countless raids, massacres, captures and escapes from 1858 to September 4, 1886, when he surrendered without condition as a dangerous outlaw to General Nelson Miles (Nelson Appleton Miles; 1839-1925) at his hideout in Skeleton Canyon, Arizona; he was profiled in the 1912 silent short film Geronimo's Last Raid; by Chief White Horse in the 1939 John Ford class film Stagecoach; by Chief Thundercloud in the 1939 film Geronimo (a full biopic on Geronimo that was condemned by some film critics as showing him as no more than a savage killer, based on the wrong-headed notion that all white men were bad and all Indians were good, but this frightening film more accurately depicted Geronimo's true bloodlust and his murder-for-profit lifestyle than any other motion picture); by Tom Tyler in the 1942 film Valley of the Sun; by an unknown actor in the 1948 John Ford classic cavalry film Fort Apache; by Chief Thundercloud again in the 1950 film I Killed Geronimo; by Jay Silverheels in the 1950 film Broken Arrow; by John War Eagle in the 1951 film The Last Outpost; by Miguel Inclan again in the 1952 film Indian Uprising; by Jay Silverheels again in the 1952 film The Battle At Apache Pass; by Chief Yowlachie in the 1952 film Son of Geronimo: Apache Avenger; by Ian MacDonald in the 1954 film Taza, Son of Cochise; by Monte Blue in the 1954 film Apache; by Jay Silverheels again in the 1956 film Walk the Proud Land; by Chuck Connors in a full but inaccurate biopic in the 1962 film Geronimo; by Enrique Lucero in the 1979 made-for-TV film Mr. Horn; Joseph Runningfox in the 1993 made-for-TV film Geronimo; and by Wes Studi in the 1993 film Geronimo: An American Legend, a film that creates an interesting but false characterization of the ferocious Apache warrior as a mystic, pensive and introspective rebel;
