The events surrounding the 1881 battle at Cibecue, Arizona, between the United States Army and the White Mountain Apache Indians have been reported by various non-Indian authors. An account dictated by Tom Friday, son of one of the Apaches involved in the battle, provides an interpretation of these same events from an Apache point of view. The boyhood of Tom Friday has also been described by his White guardian. Friday's own account provides the basis for useful comparisons between his perception of both the Battle of Cibecue and of his own childhood and the non-Indians' perceptions of these same episodes.
