Dahteste






Apache woman warrior Dahteste (pronounced Tah-des-te), who lived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was considered by her people to be such a great hunter and warrior and so skillful at communication in English that Geronomo selected her -- among all those he could have chosen -- to speak for him to the U.S. Cavalry. Imprisoned with Geronimo and other Apaches for nearly two decades after they were tricked and captured by the U.S. government, Dahteste lived through it all to re-join her people before she died, a highly repected warrior and in-your-face woman.
