Re: “The Strange Saga of Geronimo's Skull

It appears that most letters here are posted by people who did not read this excellent article. If they had, they'd be very skeptical that Skull & Bones ever possessed Geronimo's remains. Also, I'd like to point out to Mr. Pasvantis that Geronimo is in fact buried alongside as many as nine family members in the consecrated Beef Creek Apache Cemetery at Ft. Sill. Tribal members are still being buried in the cemetery. It is Harlyn's goal to dig up this grave and move it to a tourist site he is designing in which there are no family graves or nearby Chiricahua Apache community. How many readers would do this to a great grandfather? Most traditional Apaches I know insist that graves should never be moved, and that Harlyn's claim that Apaches desire to be buried near their birthplace is sheer fantasy.

Re: “The Strange Saga of Geronimo's Skull

This is the most intelligent and best informed article I've read about this debate. Why is the public so eager to believe the Skull & Bones nonsense as fact? Why has the media embraced Harlyn and largely ignored the opinions of the greater Geronimo family and the Ft. Sill and Mescalero Apache communities? Is it because Harlyn is an actor who looks like a Hollywood Apache and knows what the white guilt crowd wants to hear? All that really matters in this case are the opinions of the family and tribe, and they have spoken. The majority members of the Geronimo family in Mescalero, NM and leaders of the Ft. Sill Apache community in Oklahoma filed injunctions stopping Harlyn's efforts to move the grave, and have gone on record opposing his Skull & Bones suit. The case is closed. Readers wishing to honor the family legacy and tribal traditions should respect the opinions of the greater family and tribe.
