“There were two tribes, tribes of creatures:  the birds or the feathered tribes and the beasts.   The former were organized under their chief,  

the eagle.

These tribes often held councils and the birds wanted light admitted.  This the beasts repeatedly refused to do.                                                                           

Finally the birds made war against the beasts…”

ORIGIN OF THE APACHE INDIANS*

(the script)
“Because he has given me permission to tell my story; because he has read that story and knows I try to speak the truth; because I believe that he is fair-minded and will cause my people to receive justice in the future; and because he is chief of a great people, I dedicate this story of my life to Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States.”

— GERONIMO, aka: original name, “Goyahkla”.

teaser2: 

The scientist, the chemist… still clad in her freshly starched and gleaming white lab jacket.  Still freshly pressed.  Still white.   Still impeccable.  (She had had the laboratory coat altered and fit to her carefully honed [and, hard won] pilates svelte and tall-like frame. 

That made her look taller.  She liked that. In fact, she had had them all altered.  All 19. 

All 19 lab jackets.  To fit just so so.) 

The R and D* money had come in.  All of it. All of the funds.  All of the grants.  Everything! She was, suddenly, rich beyond imagine… beyond her wildest dreams… beyond anyone’s ‘dreams’.  (In fact, the whole Lab — her Lab — went on a Pub Crawl.  To celebrate.)

The proposal was a grand success… her proposal.

She stretched out her sheer hosed and leggy – long legs, across her carefully cluttered and disheveled Lab desk in front of her, yawning wide…. and, admiring her slightly scuffed and light beigey buff, silky suede

Jimmy Choo stilettos…

“I think I need a new pair of shoes…”
