Apache Women Warriors challenges the popular literature and film stereotypes of the passive Native American woman. Apache women were able to assume a variety of roles which gave them more prestige and freedom than most of their eighteenth and nineteenth century female counterparts. These women were the primary providers for their families, could attain and use supernatural power, and participate in raids and wars.
Kimberly Moore Buchanan's research draws heavily on the oral history work of the late Eve Ball. A major portion of this study centers on the warrior, Lozen, said to have been the unmarried sister of the famous Warm Springs Apache chief Victorio. She allegedly possessed amazing supernatural powers and was an excellent equestrienne and fighter. Only in the past fifteen years has Lozen emerged as a figure of interest in Native American history.
Women warriors were a relatively small, but by no means miniscule faction among Native Americans. Their accomplishments call for a revision of the erroneous popular belief that characterizes Native American women as passive characters in American history.
