An Apache warrior by William F. Farny

Located on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, the Battle of Cibecue, occurring on August 30, 1881, was brought on by the influence of a shaman, Nockadelklinne, who preached a doctrine of raising the dead and removing the white interlopers from Arizona. Alarmed civilians and military personnel wanted the shaman arrested. Fighting erupted shortly after Nockadelklinne’s arrest along Cibecue Creek. The Prophet, as he was called, died in the aftermath, as did several soldiers under Colonel Eugene Asa Carr. Most of Carr’s casualties resulted from the mutiny of the White Mountain Apache scouts. The Cibecue affair touched off a general outbreak that saw Chiricahua and Warm Springs Apaches such as Naiche, Juh, and Geronimo bolt the reservation and plunge Arizona, New Mexico, and northern Mexico into two years of turmoil. Cibecue battlefield is located in the village of Cibecue. No marker denotes the site.
