Geronimo and the Apache Resistance

For decades in the 19th century, Apache tribes resisted the westward advance of the pioneers and the threat they posed to traditional ways of life. Fighting the longest was Geronimo--one of the most famous, feared, and misunderstood Native American warriors in history. Geronimo and the Apache Resistance, from the PBS American Experience collection, separates myth from reality in the tragic collision of two cultures with dramatically different views of the world--and of each other. It is an illumination of the mysteries of Apache power that made them so terrifying in battle yet so skillful in escaping disaster. In the words of the descendants of those Apaches, the film provides the long-awaited chance to tell their story as it has never been told.

  • ""For the first time, the Chiricahua Apaches tell the story of Geronimo, their legendary 19th century leader and of the 25 years of warfare with the U.S. government that ended in peace in the American southwest and the permanent exile of these, the most resistant of all Apaches, to the loss of traditional homelands in Arizona and New Mexico.""@en

  • "Descendants of legendary Native American leader Geronimo tell the story of a half-century of war, displacement, confinement, and finally resistance that ended with the decimation of the Chiricahua Apaches and the loss of their traditional homeland in the Southwest. Geronimo is revealed as a shrewd leader, formidable fighter, and poetic shaman--dedicated to a crusade to keep his ancestral land, repeatedly defying and eluding federal authorities. When the government finally forced his surrender in 1886, the Apaches were prisoners, moved to reservations in Florida and later Oklahoma. Their homeland was never returned to them. The film tells an unpleasant story of cruelty, prejudice, and betrayal, and of a tragic collision of two civilizations, each with startlingly different views of one another."@en
