Lozen's incredible skills and eventful, tragic life earned her the nickname the "Apache Joan of Arc." This Native American warrior was a Chihenne Chiricahua Apache medicine woman, a skilled fighter and strategist on the battlefield, the sister of a prominent Apache chief and ally to the famous Geronimo.

Even as a child, Lozen demonstrated prolific abilities beyond her years. Many other Apache women's roles were being in charge of the home and community, but Lozen was more interested in the art of war. She became a medicine woman and warrior — a role not very common (although not unheard of) among her people.

She could ride, shoot and had a gift for strategy. Lozen’s talents soon became the stuff of legend. Whenever the Apache needed to know how to plan an attack, she seemingly had a supernatural ability to predict where the enemy was going to be and she would often pray to the Apache’s highest deity, Ussen, for guidance — hence, why she is so often compared to her European counterpart, Joan.
