Geronimo!

August 30, 2013 - Karin Elton
When preparing the histories for next week’s paper, I came across this tidbit: Sept. 4, 1886: “A group of Apache Indians led by Geronimo (also known as Goyathlay, 'One Who Yawns') surrendered to Gen. Nelson Miles at Skeleton Canyon in Arizona.”

I find it amusing that Geronimo, which is something you might yell when jumping out of a plane or performing a cannonball into a pool or something heroic like that, also was “known as Goyathlay, ‘One Who Yawns.’"

Next time I yawn, I will whisper, “Goyathlay!”
