It’s a very important and powerful place for me — not just the whole desert Southwest but the specific areas that Geronimo called home. The Chiricahua Apaches lived in southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico, and far northern Mexico. They had lived there for many hundreds of years. They were very close to Mother Nature and to the nature spirits of their homeland. They were almost impossible to track — except by other Apaches. There is a humongous amount of mojo in the land that was once the Apache homeland. I have felt it.
