Here's a sobering thought. The relatives of the 9•11 hijackers are celebrating today and toasting their loved ones as righteous heroes.
Meanwhile, it's time to thank all the re-enactors who have helped me in my quest to accurately portray Apaches in my forthcoming book on Geronimo. For starters I need to thank longtime models, DeAnne Giago (below, left) and Flint Carney.
I also need to give a shout out to Jim Hatzell of Rapid City, South Dakota, who puts on an annual Artist's Ride in August and, even though I have never attended (yet!), he has shared with me many photos of his Apache models. Another resource for me is Dale Miles, the San Carlos Apache Reservation Historian who has also provided me with excellent reference with several San Carlos Apaches who I have photographed over the past 20-some years.
