SPECIAL NOTE: Held at St. Bede’s Church-Parist Hall, 550 W. San Mateo Road
Early on the morning of August 8, 1881, seven Apache and twelve Navajo warriors made their way on horseback down a piñon and ponderosa shrouded plateau in west-central New Mexico Territory to the La Cebolla Ranch house of Domingo Gallegos. Led by 66 yr. old Nana (Kas-tziden), who was determined to avenge the death of his nephew Victorio, they killed the rancher, a ranch-hand, carrying off Plácida, her 9-month-old daughter and riding off into timbered high country to the east. This is the story of capture, heartbreaking agony, and miraculous escape of Plácida Romero.
