Chiricahua Apaches " The Two Year Promise"


Enjady is the great-grandson of the Chiricahua Apache warrior Perico, who fought alongside Chief Naiche and Geronimo.

 Pascal Enjady, a Chiricahua Apache,  presented  his 29-minute film “The Two Year Promise”.
The title of the film refers to the promise made to the Chiricahua Apaches when they surrendered to General Miles in Skeleton Canyon. The Apaches were told that they would be held as prisoners of war for two years in Florida, after which they would be returned to the reservation in Arizona. Instead, they were held as prisoners of war for 27 years, from 1886 to 1913. This year represents the 100th anniversary of the removal of their prisoner of war status.

This was a speaker meeting held in Portal, Arizona on April 29, 2013. Enjady sang and played his drum for everyone to enjoy, he lives at Mescarlero Reservation with his family.

The members of Chief Naiche and Geronimo band were the last to resist U.S. government of the Southwest. The tribe was released to Fort Sill, Oklahoma and Mescarlero Reservation in New Mexico where the majority of the tribe live today.
