Snow Owl, July 2003

NANA Kas-tziden:

     He was born Kas-tziden in southern New Mexico among the Mimbreno Apache. Possibly a sub-chief of the Mimbreno, Nana had the longest fighting career of any of the Apache warriors. He acquired many injuries in battle and in the later part of his life he was almost cripple barely able to mount a horse. 

     Nana was always steady and reliable in battle. He fought alongside Mangas Coloradas until Mangas was killed in 1863. Nana aligned with Victorio in his raids

through Texas and Mexico . When Victorio was killed in 1880, Nana formed his owned war party raiding isolated settlers and an army supply train. The army's pursuit of Nana was futile. Nana was a fine strategist and he eluded or defeated the militia. 

     Finally in a surprise attack Nana was captured and sent to the San Carlos Reservation. He bolted and joined Geronimo in Mexico . Nana kept his band out of the hands of the army for about a year and surrendered in March, 1886. 

     Nana was sent to Fort Marion , Florida because George Crook considered him the brains of the hostile bands. In 1894, Nana was allowed to return as far west as Fort Sill , OK where he died at the age of 96. Nana is buried in the Apache Cemetery on the Fort Sill military base.

HEYA!
