Apache Indians

The Apache Indians have dominated the title of fierce warriors for hundreds of years.  The Apache Indians lived in the southwestern regions such as Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.  The Apache were fierce warriors that didn’t give up their home territories to settlers easily.  They fought tooth and nail against the Spanish, the early American settlers, and Mexicans.  They were infamous for raiding the Spaniards who were settling and colonizing during the 1600’s. 

The Apache Indians captured many of the Spaniards horses and began to learn how to ride them.  They became expert horsemen and continued to fight with warrior style.  In fact, the Apaches were such expert warriors, that the Spaniards soon learned that it was better to make peace treaties with the Apaches then to continue their battles with them.  However, making a peace treaty with the Spaniards often meant that one province was in treaty, while a neighboring Spaniard province would be raided.

After many failed attempts to make peace with the Apache Indians, the result was to finally place the Apaches on their own reservations.  Though many battles ensured and the Apaches found the restrictions of life on a reservation difficult, there are at least seven Apache reservations that are in existence today.  These reservations are not only functional, but they are also highly prosperous.
