Trivia

Because Michael Ansara did such a convincing portrayal of Cochise, and because of his somewhat Indian-sounding name, many viewers thought he actually was an Indian. In reality, he was born in Syria and his parents, while American citizens, were from Egypt. See more »

Broken Arrow - lessons learned then and much later
2 June 2008 | by (Edison,United States) – See all my reviews

I don't remember much of the actual episodes; only the lessons taught me by the series. My mom (who claimed to be in some small part Blackfoot),had me watch the first few episodes and after that I watched them without her having to coax me. She had told me that the Indians,contrary to what we were lead to believe in school,had a strong sense of honor,Justice, Codes of Conduct and fair play,and took care of and had great respect for their elderly within the tribe. Years later,when I found myself in Ranger training with a full blood Apache, I found him to be a friend who, not only reinforced what mom had said, but was a wealth of information on their customs,rituals,and history. We'd been assigned on several missions together in Vietnam and I believe he'd adopted me as his little brother(then I was 5'8" and he was 6'4")Since I was the smaller I'd go in while he watched my back. It was a learning experience for the both of us as each found that what we had learned in our younger years truly had to be,as YODA would say "unlearn what you have learned". Much like what Broken Arrow taught me,what we all thought to be the case, was NOT the case at all. Perhaps we all could benefit from the lessons Broken Arrow has to teach!?
