POSTCARD OF INDIAN CHIEF

There have been many great Indian chiefs throughout history.  To become an Indian chief, you had to prove that you were strong, brave, and a great leader.

You have probably heard of many of the more famous Indian chiefs.  Cochise was the Indian chief of the Apache.  He was known as a fierce warrior and led a resistance against both the Mexicans and the white man in the 1800s.  The Apaches lived in what is now known as northern Mexico, New Mexico and Arizona.  Cochise was captured and escaped many times before his final capture. He refused to leave what he felt was his people’s land and eventually lived out his life on an Arizona reservation. Another famous Indian chief who was also an Apache was Geronimo.  Like Cochise, he also made many daring escapes when captured, but was never allowed to return to his home land.  He was contained at Fort Sill, Oklahoma as a prisoner.  Despite that, he became somewhat of a celebrity in his old age.  He appeared at the 1904 World’s Fair and other fairs, selling photographs and souvenirs before his death in 1909.

Postcard of Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) North America Wildlife The brown pelican soars over the water is search of fish. Once the fish is spotted, the pelican plunges from heights of up to 30 feet to capture the fish in its expandable pouch. Though the pelican’s history dates back at least 30 million years, it was threatened with extinction in the 1970s because of DDT pollution in the fish it eats. The ban of DDT has improved the brown pelican’s chance of survival. Photographer- Birds as Art/Arthur Morris Postcard size 4 x 6  Get Your Here!.
