This image available for photographic prints and downloads HERE!


Mangus Coloradas, pictured above in 1884, is son of Mangas Coloradas, also known as Red Sleeves and Dasoda-hae to his Chiricahua Apache people. Mangas was born in New Mexico around 1793. Mangas was a superb Apache warrior who eventually became the chief and war leader of the Eastern Chiricahua ApacheIn the 1820's and 1830's, the Apaches' chief enemy were the Mexicans, who had gained their independence from Spain in 1821. As War Leader, Mangas Coloradas led a number of attacks on Mexican settlements in Sonora and Chiricahua. When the United States defeated Mexico, to acquire the lands of New Mexico and Arizona, Mangas Coloradas signed a peace treaty, respecting them as conquerors of the hated Mexican enemies.


However, the peace was tenuous and conflict began as numerous white settlers encroached upon Apace lands and Mangas was personally attacked by a group of miners who tied him to a tree and severely beat him near Pinos Altos, New Mexico in 1851. Continued violations of the treaty soon led to Apache reprisals. In 1861, his son-in-law, Cochise, was falsely accused of kidnapping a young white boy and arrested along with several other Apaches. Cochise was able to escape, but the event led to all out war against the white settlers. Mangas Coloradas soon joined with Cochise, as well as Geronimo in staving off the white settlers.
