Arizona Information

Arizona gets its name from the Native American word Arizona, believed to mean place of the small spring.

States neighbouring Arizona are: California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. Arizona also borders with Mexico.

Arizona's famous son is Geronimo (1829-1909), the Chiricahua Apache chief who resisted the idea of life on a reservation in New Mexico, Florida, or Alabama.

For ten years he would terrorise the white settlers with his intermittent raids.

Ironically, the early colonists pushed the Native Americans westwards, and now they were being forced east again.

Geronimo eventually gave up the ten-year struggle in 1886, and was settled in Oklahoma.

He took part in the inaugural procession of President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905, and had his life story published the following year.
