In February of 1909, the indomitable Chiricahua Apache warrior and war shaman Geronimo lay on his deathbed. He summoned his nephew to his side, whispering, "I should never have surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last man alive." It was an admission of regret from a man whose insistent pursuit of military resistance in the face of overwhelming odds confounded not only his Mexican and American enemies, but many of his fellow Apaches as well. Born around 1820, Geronimo grew into a leading warrior and healer. But after his tribe was relocated to an Arizona reservation in 1872, he became a focus of the fury of terrified white settlers, and of the growing tensions that divided Apaches struggling to survive under almost unendurable pressures. To angry whites, Geronimo became the archfiend, perpetrator of unspeakable savage cruelties.

The last big trouble-maker!
14 June 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"We Shall Remain" is a five-part series by Ric Burns (Ken's brother) on the history of the American Indians from "The American Experience". However, it should be understood that it is NOT a comprehensive history. There are many gaps, omissions and most tribes are not discussed in the shows. This is simply because with five parts, there just wasn't enough time to do the subject justice.

This fourth episode is all about Geronimo and his lengthy battle against Mexico and the United States. While not a chief of the Chiracahua Apache, he was a warrior who led a band of his people who resented the mistreatment of the American Indians so much that they became so-called 'renegades'--folks at war with practically everyone. It's a fascinating story about one man and a few followers who refused to accept the march of time...and how, in some ways, he got away with it. Fascinating throughout and yet another excellent episode of this wonderful short series from "The American Experience".
