Salon & Saloon Lecture: Naiche-Last Hereditary Chief of the Chiricahua Apache
Saturday, Feb. 20, 7 pm
$5 per person
Bill Cavaliere, president of the Cochise County Historical Society and board member of the Arizona Historical Society’s southern chapter, covers the life of Naiche, Cochise’s youngest son, who unexpectedly rose to the position of chief in 1876 with the sudden passing of his older brother. Naiche’s life was eventful yet ultimately tragic. He was constantly compared to his famous father Cochise. His authority was always overshadowed by his companion Geronimo, and he faced the humility of being the chief who was responsible for surrendering his people. This presentation covers his life from his early years until his death.
Cavaliere is the author of The Chiricahua Apaches – A Concise History, and he lectures frequently on the Chiricahua Apaches at colleges and historical societies.
