Product Description
This is an 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – Cochise. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Apache chief Cochise, was a prominent leader of the Chiricahuas and feared for his settlement raids of the mid-18th century. He was arrested and accused of kidnapping a rancher’s son in 1861, igniting conflict between his people and the U.S. government. About a decade after Cochise died, Felix Tellez–the boy whose kidnapping had started the war–resurfaced as an Apache-speaking scout for the U.S. Army. He reported that a group of Western Apache, not Cochise, had kidnapped him.

Over the following decade, Cochise conducted more raids and fought with U.S. soldiers, eluding capture by retreating into the Dragoon Mountains. He accepted the government’s offer to move the Chiricahuas to large reservation in southeastern Arizona near the end of his life.

The fighting continued until Geronimo's surrender in 1886. Afterwards, the remnants of the Chiricahua were shipped off to reservations in the east where most of them died. Today, there are only a few descendants of the Chiricahua Apache living in OK and NM, and there are none at all on their original land.
