Lecture: The Mystery of Lulu Verde
11/20/2021 at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Following an Indian massacre committed by the 3rd Cavalry, local lore claims the surviving Apache girl, Lulu Verde, was adopted by pioneers Wales & Sarah Arnold—was she raised as a ‘child slave,’ or ‘beloved daughter? Robert Estrada shares Lulu’s story of endurance and determination, along with that of other “adopted” daughters, in this presentation.
