Goyathlay (Geronimo) (c. 1829-1909)

Goyathlay was a Chiricahua Apache leader whose wife, children, and mother were slaughtered in 1858. Goyathlay resisted the U.S. government policy to consolidate his people on reservations by leading a series of raids against Mexican and American settlements in the Southwest. Although the U.S. and Mexico had been massacring Apaches for many years, the Native Americans were considered bloodthirsty and Goyathlay became a target for elimination.
