ca 1809 - 1879

Victorio was known for his skills in warfare tactics. He lived up to his name, "The Triumphant One". Despite the hardships and abuses imposed on his people, he tried to keep peace. He died victorious, striving to protect his people against all odds and injustices committed against him by non-Indians invading his territorial lands. Driven from his homelands time and time again, he was forced to take revenge and went on the warpath one last time. He said, "Only after you deprive me of life will I lay down my weapons. It is only then that you may do with my people and homelands as you wish I have tried to keep peace until I could not any longer."
