Native American Apache Chief. A Warm Springs Apache, he was a well respected voice for peace among his people. His stance was resented by rival Apache chief Geronimo. In 1882, Geronimo used a gun to force Loco off the San Carlos Reservation and join him in his war against the Americans and Mexicans. When Loco was able to escape from Geronimo, he returned to San Carlos. Though he had voluntarily returned to the reservation, he was arrested and sent to Florida. He was transferred to Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
