Válečnice: Lozen / Warrior Women: Lozen

The Apache warrior Lozen fought side by side with her brother Victorio and the famous Geronimo for the freedom of her tribe. Ironically, what killed her was not the bullet of an American soldier but the tuberculosis she caught in an Alabama prison. Many films were inspired by the acts of bravery of Geronimo or Victorio. An important woman fought by their side as well: Lozen. The documentary series Warrior Women presents her in one episode as a shaman and skilled and respected warrior who repeatedly met the American and Mexican cavalries. According to legends, she had the ability to recognise the enemy’s intentions before the attack and made use of this skill quite often. Her story is told as an example of courage and determination up to this day.
