National Parks Store: Film–Geronimo and the Apache Resistance

One of the most feared, famous, and misunderstood American Indian warriors in our history, Geronimo and the Apache Resistance sheds light onto an important historical figure of the Southwest.

Share on Facebook

Legendary Apache leader, Geronimo, had magical powers: he could see the future, walk without creating footprints, and even hold off the dawn to protect his own forces. He and his fellow Apache maintained near-constant conflict with U.S. Troops and Mexican Army and militia for several decades in the 1800s, becoming one of the most famous, feared, and misunderstood American Indian warriors in our history.

Part of the American Experience series, Geronimo and the Apache Resistance is a search to separate myth from reality; an examination of the Apache People who once ruled much of the American Southwest, and those with whom they came into conflict. At its heart it’s the tragic collision of two civilizations, each with dramatically different views of the world and startlingly different views of each other. Geronimo was the last American Indian to surrender; this film includes interviews with his descendants and friends.

Showings at 12 PM & 2 PM.
