SIX Geronimo's Surrender

In the often-told story of Geronimo's final surrender, his warriors and allies played pivotal roles, but we don't know much about them. History might have been different if it hadn't been for Martine and Kayitah, members of Juh's and Geronimo's bands who became army scouts, and Yanosha, one of Geronimo's most seasoned warriors.

Martine, a Nednhi Apache and first cousin of Chiricahua chief Chihuahua, was captured as a child by Mexicans. When he rejoined Juh's band, he was about twelve. At the time, Geronimo and some of his people were with Juh, including the parents of Kayitah. Juh gave Martine to them and the two boys became lifelong friends. When the band spent a winter at San Carlos, Martine met and married Lillian, granddaughter of Victorio and Mangas Coloradas. Kayitah, who occasionally rode with Chihuahua, married a Chiricahua woman, Sahn-uh-shlu, later called Mary. 1 The two men lived near each other. 2

" Martine wanted to leave peacefully; did not want his wife and children to go on the warpath," said George Martine. "My father never wanted to go. He wished to stay at San Carlos but finally he joined the cavalry as a scout. When General [Nelson A.] Miles got in command, Martine was a scout with the Warm Springs and Chiricahua Apaches. They joined the army and started following Geronimo's band. Kayitah was his pat. General Miles named him Charles, so he was Charles Martine.
