With research this picture was able to be identified as captured women & children of Apache leaders & warriors of Chihuahua, Geronimo, Perico, Bishche & Mangus photographed at Fort Bowie, Arizona Territory in April of 1886. The families were used by the U.S. Government & General Crook to lure the Chiricahua men to the peace councils to be held at Canyon de los Embudos. Within hours of sitting for their photographs, the unsuspecting women & children were sent into twenty-seven years of captivity & exile. The numbered list below coincides with the picture above. Honor & Respect for the ancestors.
