Starring Rudy Ramos; Directed by Steve Railsback
“The white men will never tell the whole story. They control everything that is said about us in newspapers and books. Even the maps favor the whites. Look and you will see they are dotted with each place we fought the white soldiers. Look closely. You will see that if the soldiers won, it was a victory. If we won, it was a massacre.”
A story of Geronimo’s life as a POW on the Ft. Sill Indian Reservation. It focuses on the resiliency, humor, and genius of the great Apache warrior.
In this presentation, Geronimo cleverly evolves from a surrendered Indian leader into a celebrity and entrepreneur. Keenly aware of how to work the political system, he joins the same church that Teddy Roosevelt belongs to and rides in his Inaugural Parade. Although he isn’t successful in getting everything he wants, he certainly succeeds in making the best of his situation.
Geronimo was never beaten. He simply adapted to his present circumstances.
