One incident, Geronimo saw a beautiful married woman one day and he wanted that woman and the following morning the womans husband was found dead, his throat was slash. And Geronimo got the beautiful woman he wanted.
Can you call this senseless killing was done under a different time and circumstances and call Geronimo a hero?
If Geronimo was such a great leader and has wisdom why does he have to kill innocent and defenseless peaceful Apaches that are not a threat to him?
Geronimo angered and went on a rampage. I can't say I can blame him. I would do the same thing if someone killed off my entire family, and was stripping me of everything I knew to be right of the world. From my clothing, my religion, my beliefs, and began to destroy mother earth.
Perhaps he killed other Apaches; he killed white men and Mexican men as well. What he was thinking and why perhaps will never truly be understood.
I believe he stood for the Apache way of life. Geronimo, a proud, heart-broken man was not willing to give up his heritage and beliefs for someone else's, especially that of those who only knew how to take.
