Chief Talkalai was chief of the Apache Peaks band of Apaches (about 20 miles north of Globe). He was a great friend of John Clum, first Indian agent at San Carlos and later friend of the Earps in Tombstone. Talkalai once saved Clum's life by shooting his own brother. Talkalai later served in many Indian police positions on the San Carlos Reservation. He died at nearly 100 years of age in Miami, Arizona, on the same day that Coolidge Dam was dedicated.
