Cunning as a coyote, Geronimo was cap tured only once-at the Warm Springs Agency, now in ruins, where Indian agent john -,, Clam summoned the Apache and his follow ers onApril 2I, 1877. Clum was determined to move the band from Warm Springs, where they lived as hunters and raiders, to San Carlos, a reservation where Apache bands were being taught to farm. "We thought they wanted a council," Geronimo later explained-but Clam had laid a trap. At his signal an armed force burst from hiding and surrounded the Indians. Geronimo had no choice but to hand over his rifle (right) and ride to San Carlos in irons. He was later released, but without his gun; Clum kept it as a souvenir.
