i dont recall that name? here is the story behind the painting;
Lozen, was the sister of Victorio, Chief, of the Warm Springs Apache. The only woman who for forty years fought alongside Geronimo, Cochise, Nana, Mangus, Naiche, Loco and other great warriors in some of the bloodiest incidents of the Apache Wars. She fought at the Battle of Apache Pass, in Victorio’s struggle for his homeland, in the massacre at Cibecue, and throughout the Geronimo Campaigns.
A Supernatural power bestowed on her by the Creator, Lozen would lift her arms to the sky, place her hands against the wind, and through the warm sensations of the open palms could detect the direction and distance of her enemies. As she slowly turned, singing her song while following the direction of the sun, her hands tingled and the palms changed color when they pointed toward the foe. The intensity of the sensation indicated the approximate distance of the enemy, the closer the adversary, the more vivid the feeling. She also had power to calm and tame horses by her mere presence. In her final days of freedom, under the leadership of Geronimo, she rode like the wind through the mountainous regions of Mexico pursued by and successfully evading one quarter of the United States Army. She died alone, as a prisoner of war in the state of Alabama.
