The Apache tribe is a very noble and interesting one. Breaking into six distinct regional groups (Western Apache, Chiricahua, Mescalero, Jicarilla, Lipan, and Kiowa Apache), the Apache nation stretched from Arizona to Texas. Apaches were mainly hunters of deer, gophers, wild turkeys and lizards.
Apaches were great hunters but also great warriors. Apache comes from a Yuma word for "fighting-men" and Zuni for "enemy." The Apaches gained a great reputation for being a warlike tribe after continuous battles with other tribes and invaders from Mexico. However, Apaches are described as very gentle and faithful in their friendship.
At the present, Apaches live on reservations in Arizona and New Mexico.
