Apache Religion

Geronimo: Apache Chief

“We had no churches, no religious organizations, no Sabbath day, no holidays, and yet we worshipped.

Sometimes the whole tribe would assemble and sing and pray; sometimes a smaller number, perhaps only two or three . . .

Sometimes we prayed in silence; sometimes each prayed aloud; sometimes an aged person prayed for all of us.”

(from Native American Wisdom: Philadelphia and London: Running Press, 1994)
