Overview

Despite the significant role they have played in Texas history for nearly four hundred years, the Lipan Apaches remain among the least studied tribal groups in the West.

Direct attempts to dissolve them as a tribal unit began during the Spanish period and continued with the establishment of the Republic of Texas in 1836.
