But Geronimo fought the longest, becoming one of the most famous, feared and misunderstood Indian warriors in our history. Now at last, descendants of those Apaches who fought so long ago tell their story as it has never been told in this film from the PBS documentary series American Experience.

  • Geronimo was a leader of the Chiricahua Apache who defended the Apache homeland from the U.S. military for 25 years. During his lifetime he became a legend as more than 5,000 U.S. troops attempted to hunt him down in the Southwest. He surrendered in 1886 and spent his final two decades of life as a prisoner of war. For the first time, the Apache people tell the story of their great leader and his resistance of the American government and military.
