HARTFORD, Connecticut — Geronimo's descendants have sued Skull and Bones — the secret society at Yale University linked to presidents and other powerful figures — claiming that its members stole the remains of the legendary Apache leader decades ago and have kept them ever since. The federal lawsuit filed in Washington on Tuesday — the 100th anniversary of Geronimo's death — also names the university and the federal government.
Its most enduring story is the one concerning Geronimo's remains, and in 2005, Yale historian Marc Wortman discovered a letter written in 1918 from one Skull and Bones member to another that seemed to lend validity to the tale. The letter, sent to F. Trubee Davison by Winter Mead, said Geronimo's skull and other remains were taken from the leader's burial site, along with several pieces of tack for a horse.
"The skull of the worthy Geronimo the Terrible, exhumed from its tomb at Fort Sill by your club and Knight Haffuer, is now safe inside the Tomb together with is well worn femurs, bit and saddle horn," Mead wrote.

Zoom in a bit further, I don't think that guy is Geronimo or even Native American. Creative imagination though, maybe if the ribbon on his neck wasn't darker than his hair it'd almost look like long hair.
That's my input.
Peace.edit on 10-10-2011 by TheFuzzMonster because: I looked again, not a bandana, maybe a ribbon.
