His real apache name was Doolé Gizé (Twisting Butterfly). A Western Apache, he was member of the Pinal band. He served as an army scout against the Chiricahuas and he became famous after a part of his nose was shot off during a skirmish with hostiles Apaches
Donald E. Worcester argues, however, that Nosey was a Chiricahua leader. Other scholars who are of the opinion that Nosey was a Chiricahua claim that his real name was Na-wha-ze-tah.
Yes, I do. There is a book of Geronimo and it has some pictures of Nosey and I believe his wife. Actually, I am wondering if we have spoken before and if you live on the White Mountain Indian Reservation. Nosey was a friend of Geronimo. Geronimo had several White Mountain Apache friends. Chief William Alchesay was also a friend of Geronimo. Geronimo in his early years did live at the San Carlos Indian Agency. Nosey is a famous person. I would have to research him to write about him correctly. I would begin with his military record as a scout, then the census records of San Carlos Indian Agency, and track his family members. The rest of my research I regret to say is top-secret research. Why? Because it is very difficult.
