House passes resolution in honor of Geronimo
The U.S. House on Monday passed a resolution in honor of Apache warrior and leader Geronimo.

The resolution comes on the 100th anniversary of Geronimo's death. He was being held as a prisoner of war in Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

The resolution doesn't mention an ongoing controversy about Geronimo's remains. His great-grandson filed a lawsuit to move the body from Oklahoma to southern New Mexico, his ancestral homeland.

The lawsuit drew significant media coverage last week. It includes a secret Yale University society whose members allegedly stole Geronimo's skull from Fort Sill.
