As the summer of 1885 wore on, two things became very obvious in Gatewood’s life: both his relationship with the White Mountain Apaches and his relationship with Gen. George Crook were nearing an end. He had been military commandant of the White Mountain Indian Reservation since the fall of 1882, and he had reported directly to Crook and worked closely with his wards since his appointment. By this time, Gatewood had become an expert on the subject of Apaches and their management. He had played a major role in their lives, seen all the ills heaped upon them by the white man, and not only known of their discontent but also sympathized with it.
His knowledge of the Apaches—especially the White Mountain Apaches— was unique. His very life depended upon those under his command accepting and obeying him at all times. Like most of us, he befriended some of his coworkers—his native coworkers. Predating the handful of Apache ethnologists of the twentieth century, such as Grenville Goodwin, Morris Edward Opler, and Eve Ball—who through years of hard work of befriending Apaches and then interviewing them have documented both a cultural and historical oral tradition that could have been lost, Gatewood literally walked in their footsteps before they did.
7 When Gatewood began writing his manuscript, he had a firm idea of what he wanted to write about. Logically it should follow that he began writing this chapter in 1886, shortly after the Apaches surrendered for the last time in September; however, other events named in this chapter date the writing as mid-1887 at the earliest. To further date this chapter, Gatewood mentions that Apache prisoners of war had been moved from Florida to Alabama, which now gives a more specific date for this writing or rewriting.
