If an Apache had allowed his aged parents to suffer for food or shelter, if he had neglected or abused the sick, if he had profaned our religion, or had been unfaithful, he might be banished from the tribe. – Goyathlay (Geronimo), Apache Medicine man and War Chief, 1829-1909

In Remembrance
On this day in 1783, an entire Brule village was massacred by 1300 soldiers avenging the death of 30 soldiers who were killed for murdering Conquering Bear, the Brule chief, during an argument over livestock.
