Nana Biography

Military Leader, Warrior (c. 1800–c. 1896)
Apache chief Nana (c. 1800-1896) fought alongside Geronimo to preserve the land of his Native American tribe.


Nana was a member of the Eastern band of the Chiricahua Apaches, who ranged throughout New Mexico. As a warrior chief, he conducted raids on both Mexicans and white Americans alongside fellow Apache leader Geronimo. Although they caused significant damage, Nana's forces were no match for both the American and Mexican armies. Nana spent his last years as a prisoner on a reservation in Oklahoma.
