PLEASE VISIT SITE FOR VIDEO CLIP & MORE!


Monday, May 4, 2009 at 9pm on PBS (check local listings)

To angry whites, Geronimo was an archenemy, the perpetrator of unspeakably savage cruelties. To some Apaches, he was a stubborn troublemaker whose actions needlessly brought the enemy's wrath upon them. But to his supporters, he remained the embodiment of proud resistance, leading the last Native American fighting force to surrender to the United States government.

From writers/producers/directors Dustinn Craig (I Belong to This, Home) and Sarah Colt (The Polio Crusade, The Secret Life of the Brain), the fourth episode of WE SHALL REMAIN, Geronimo tells the story of one of the most complex historical figures of the American West.

Want a preview of Geronimo? Watch the first chapter and two sneak peek clips online now!

Did you miss previous broadcasts of WE SHALL REMAIN? The first three episodes are streaming online.

The series so far has been excellent with much information that the average person would NEVER hear. You would have to go to several sources and do much reading to get the same information. Again I will state that I think this should be mandatory viewing by both the residents of the USA and of Canada (or much of the world who is practicing genocide against their own first citizens).

Geronimo is listed on my profile. To me he exemplifies courage, strength, dedication, and great wisdom. It was only through deceit by the dominent society that he allowed himself to but captured, and this he did to save his people from more suffering, so he was led to believe. I cry when I think of how he spent the remainder of his days...so much pain inflicted on such a brilliant man.

Me and my own Geronimo (beagle mix) will be cuddled together watching. I am curious as to how he reacts to hearing his name spoken on the tv. :)

Thank you Kat, I've been watching this series, and am very interested in Indian History(ies). I am glad that you 'reminded' me. I will be tuned in Monday night for sure.

I just have to comment. As you can see Geronimo is my last name. People assume that I'm Indian & ask me if I'm related to him alot. I am part Indian as well as part alot of different other things & no, I'm not related to Geronimo as far as I know. Geronimo is an Italian last name.

Thanks, Dandelion G, for expressing so well the reasons Geronimo is a top favorite Native American of my descendants (even though all my descedants are from early colonists/pioneers - except the baby grandson who IS part NA, as are my hubby & his descendants)!!! And, as always, THANK YOU, KAT!!

Thanks for this report on Geronimo!

Kat, I had to catch up on noting your news. I was sorry to see I could not reach your news items from my visit to your page. Your reports are so interesting. We learn much that we did not know about the Native Americans.

There are many justice issues facing Native Americans. I home you and some of your friends plan to come to attend the demonstration to help highlight these problems.

HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH in Atlanta on May 16

You will see more about it just by entering those words in your Yahoo browser. We are marching from Woodruff Park on Peachtree St. at 3:00 p.m. to CNN. This will hopefully bring more attention to the 25 justice issues listed in the article named above.

I am sorry Leonard Piltier is still in prison. COME MARCH WITH US.

Thanks for the reminder Kat. I have scheduled for recording.
For anyone who has not seen the We Shall Remain Series it is well worth watching!

Thanks for the link. Living not far from his home, you'd think that we would have at least seen some kind of promotion for this in the newspaper, as they do with other 'local' and relevant TV shows. Nope. Nothing.

The Chiricahuas are an amazing and beautiful place. I recommend visiting if you can.

I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures.
Geronimo

I was no chief and never had been, but because I had been more deeply wronged than others, this honor was conferred upon me, and I resolved to prove worthy of the trust.
Geronimo

Thanks Kat-noted-

In Canada, we usually cannot get any streaming videos, or other videos/programs that are advertised as available. This is extremely frustrating. I am recording this program now, but have missed the first two. Hopefully I can find a way to see the first two, eventually get to buy the whole series!

All information we have comes from the whites and with slant and hatred for this man. I have checked with the archives and read letters to the Pres about natives and their ugly views,,,,UGLY. Most of us can't even fathom the way they thought back then. He was a great man in his ways and beliefs. He was angry and it was justified.People need to get to the truth and it needs to be taught in all schools of all colors. I am sick of my kids hearing about natives murdering whites and the "great battles the whites put up". I had to reteach them with books that are not in our schools and they needed to use common sense on the battles of whites against natives. In truth, it was Genocide, kill all natives one way or the other.

Thank you Kat ..I just watched it on PBS and its also Online at PBS.org and is under American Experience. It is a sad thing that only his name is remembered when so many others fought and lost their land, family's and lives along with this brave and wonderful man.

This entire series has just been amazing. We all sit rapt each Monday evening reviewing the history and swallowing hard. We recommend it all over every chance we get because it is that valuable.

Thanks, Kat.
