description

Chato (1854-1934) was a Chiricahua Apache, born in 1854. He became a warrior and carried out several raids on settlers in Arizona and New Mexico.
He eventually surrendered to General George Crook and served under him as a scout. This included the expedition to the Sierra Madre in 1883.
In 1886 Chato led a peace delegation to Washington where he was presented with a silver medal by President Chester Arthur. On his return he served as a scout at Fort Still.
In 1913 Chato and his family went to live on the Mescalero Reservation of New Mexico.
Chato died following a car accident on 13th August, 1934.
