Nana (Apache)

Nana (Apache)

Kas-tziden, more widely known as Nana (born 1800? - died 1896), was a Chiricahua Apache leader. He was a nephew of Delgadito, and married a sister of Geronimo.

He fought alongside Mangas Coloradas until Mangas was killed in 1863. During the Indian wars he raided areas of Texas and Mexico with Victorio until Victorio was killed in 1880 at the Tres Castillos massacre. Nana then formed his own war party with the Warm Springs Apache and began raiding Army supply trains and isolated settlers. [ [ Nana's Raid — Apaches in Socorro County] ]

Nana was captured in a surprise attack and sent to the San Carlos Reservation, but he escaped and joined forces with Geronimo in Mexico, and fought with him during his last days of resistance. In 1886, he surrendered along with Geronimo and was sent to Fort Marion, Florida. In 1894, he was allowed to return as far west as Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Nana died on May 19, 1896, at the age of 96. He had the longest fighting career of any of the Apache warriors. [ [ Nana (1800 - 1896) - Find A Grave Memorial ] ]
