Lozen was the younger sister of the great Apache warrior, Victorio. The fierce leader and his sister understood that the Apache had won many battles but lost the war to the ever increasing number of white settlers.
Nevertheless, Victorio led his people in their resistance to those who came to steal Apache land. His secret weapon was his sister, Lozen, who was not only a healer, midwife, and prophet, but also a skillful warrior.
Victorio is quoted as saying, "Lozen is my right hand."
