Death Cave

In the month of June in the year 1878 a raiding party of Apache renegades jumped off the San Carlos Reservation and headed north to the peaceful Navajo Reservation to obtain the sought after Navajo blankets, jewelry and pottery as these items were highly sought after to be used in trading with the Mexicans. The Navajo Indians, peaceful farmers and ranchers were totally caught by surprise on three occasions by the raiding Apaches who killed, raped, stole everything they could carry and burned the three villages. Unknowingly the three squaws they captured and planned to use as slaves were the daughters of an area chief. The Navajo reservation is so large that generally it was too large to govern each village so the Navajo’s had area chiefs who governed several villages. Once the area chief found out about the raids he immediately put out a call for twenty five fighting men to meet him and pursue these raiders, find his daughters, return the stolen items and make the raiders pay for their bad deeds.
