Kas-tziden ("Broken Foot") or Haškɛnadɨltla ("Angry, He is Agitated"), more widely known by his Mexican-Spanish appellation Nana ("grandma" or "lullaby") (1800[?] – May 19, 1896), was a warrior and chief of the Chihenne band (better known as Warm Springs Apache) of the Chiricahua Apache. In the 1850s and 1860s he was one of the best known leaders of the Bedonkohe and Chihenne, along with Tudeevia (Delgadito), Cuchillo Negro, Ponce and Loco. He was a nephew of Delgadito, and married a sister of Geronimo. His career as a battlefield commander lasted well into his 80s, and he was captured by the United States Army in 1886 at the very end of the Apache Wars.

Nana in Southern Victory[]

Nana, despite his advanced age, remained very sharp of wit during the Second Mexican War, when he helped plan joint Apache-Confederate raids into New Mexico Territory.[1]
