Overview

First entering the present-day American Southwest around 1500, the Apaches established themselves in the face of competition from the Spanish, Mexicans, and Americans. After decades of fierce resistance, the Apache tribes eventually found themselves facing an assault on their culture as they were confined to reservations and their children were sent to boarding schools. Nevertheless, the people found new ways to preserve their culture even as they learned to navigate the changing social, political, and economic landscape of modern America. Today, most Apache still live in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, where the principal Apache reservations are located.

The History and Culture of Native Americans tells the stories, history, and traditions of 14 major Native American tribes. Each book demonstrates a tribe's importance in the development of the United States, their encounters and relations with other nations and non-Native Americans, and spotlights those people who played an integral part in historical events.
