Quotes

Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts: There's two dead women there... and two little kids. They scalped them all, all four of 'em. Bounty hunters. The government down here pays 200 pesos a head for men, 100 for women and 50 for those kids. They kill any Indian and then claim they are Apache. I don't see how any man can sink so low. Must be Texans... the lowest form of white man there is.

1st Lt. Charles B. Gatewood: That's more of a lynch mob than a posse. But if they serve those warrants, I'll have to give you up.

2nd Lt. Britton Davis: [narrating] The federal government had forced over 500 Chiricahua to take up residence within Turkey Creek's narrow borders. Corn was the main crop, but the land was not fertile enough for them to be self-sufficient. The Chiricahua had become dependent upon monthly allotments of government supplies for their well-being

Geronimo: Gatewood. You come to visit me.

1st Lt. Charles B. Gatewood: It makes my heart glad to see Geronimo. How's the life of a farmer?

Geronimo: Some Apaches are good farmer. Others miss the old way. I am not good farmer, Gatewood.

1st Lt. Charles B. Gatewood: Perhaps I could learn to hate with the proper vigor from you, Al.

Geronimo: With all this land, why is there no room for the Apache? Why does the White-Eye want all land?
