Native American Icon
    (circa 1795-January 17, 1863)
    Born in Cochise County, Arizona
    Apache war chief known for his fierce battles against Mexico and the United States
    Close friend, ally, and father-in-law of Cochise
    Real name was Dasedo-ha
    Mangas Coloradas is Spanish for Red Sleeves, which is how he was known by the Mexicans
    He had a vicious temper.
    He brutally murdered innocent men, women, and children in his wars against Mexico, the United States, and other Native American tribes.
    He killed two of his brothers-in-law when they objected to his dumping their sisters for his new white wife.
    He killed helpless hostages/prisoners when his demands were not met.
    He was ludicrously portrayed by Ross Martin (of Polish-Jewish ancestry) in the movie 'Geronimo' (and had his name misspelled as Mangus Colorado) which also featured the blue-eyed, six foot five Chuck Connors in the title role.
    His own personal courage was unquestioned.
    He didn't begin fighting Mexicans until his chief was killed by Mexican bounty hunters and didn't start his war with Americans until he was attacked and flogged by a group of drunken American miners.
    He was an absolutely brilliant tactical leader.
    He was reportedly a huge man for his time with some estimating him to be in excess of six and a half feet tall.
    Aging and tired of war, he essentially committed suicide by deliberately walking into a US Army trap and was murdered.
