The Apache Tribe
The Apache tribe of Native American Indians are famous for their fierce fighting qualities and fought for nearly 50 yeras in the Apache Wars. Their name comes from a Zuni word meaning “enemy.” Eastern Apache were predominantly hunter gatherers, whilst their Western counterparts relied more on farming, but were driven from their lands by Comanche. Today Apache live mainly on reservations covering over 3 million acres in Arizona and New Mexico. They still retain many traditional tribal customs.
