A story of Geronimo’s life as a POW on the Ft. Sill Indian Reservation. "GERONIMO, Life on the Reservation" focuses on the resiliency, humor, and genius of the great Apache warrior. Starring Rudy Ramos and directed by Steve Railsback.
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.
“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.”
