Transcript of Apache Indians

APACHE INDIANS photo (cc) Malte Sörensen @ flickr APACHE CULTURE Apache were known to be warriors.
Though some were friendly. APACHE, Friend or Foe Though the Apache still had friendly relations with the Pueblo, due to the fact that they had traded. The APACHE were said to strike
fear in the hearts of the Pueblo, Spanish,
Mexicans, and Anglo-American settlers. The Apache had always seemed to be at odds with the white man. Ready to fight for their land always. The Apache were nomads. SURVIVAL The APACHE lived in houses called wikiups. It was a simple dome home. The APACHE were also said to be the first Native Americans to ride horses. The Apache Indians were mainly in the southern regions of America.
Different tribes from the Apache lived mainly in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Geography APACHE appreciate all Rites of Passage from birth to death. WHEN a child is born their ears get pierced. Piercing the child's ears gives them the ability to hear important messages from the spirit world. There is also a Cradleboard Celebration. The Medicine man/woman blesses the child with cattail pollen. *note that the APACHE have many different tribes* *But the culture and tradition throughout is very similar* When a girl reaches puberty, they have a rite of passage called, the SUNRISE CEREMONY. The ceremony is 4 days long, ending on the morning of the 5th day *Sunrise Ceremony Dress* *Cradleboard* Apache Male Rite of Passage The Apache start preparing the boys for manhood at a young age The boys learn about their culture and go through a number of test *Boys have to get stung by a hornet to learn how to endure pain and hardship* The word Apache is said to come from
the ZUNI word, apachu, meaning, enemy. Or the Yavapai word, epache,
meaning, people. Or a Quechan word meaning,
fighting men. The Apache had raided the settlers livestock, but only because it was necessary. When game was low, this was their way to survive. The Apache in the early 1800s were at war with the Mexicans.
The Mexicans were also hated by the Apache. When the U.s went to war with Mexico, the Apache granted the Americans safe passage through their land. The Apache were known for being feared because of their name and their fighting styles.
There was no tribal leader but when a war was coming they would pick the wisest and strongest of their group. Notoriety of the Apache They hunted buffalo and used their meat for food, and hide for clothing. It was made out of animal hide, and other natural objects. *Wikiup* *Animal hide was also used to make shields and bow strings* Different Sub-Tribes of the Apache *Though the Apache derived from Canada and Alaska* A very "infamous" Apache from the Bedonkhoe tribe.
And like the Apache he hated Mexicans.
In his biography he said "I have killed many Mexicans; I do not know how many, for frequently I did not count them. Some of them were not worth counting. It has been a long time since then, but still I have no love for the Mexicans. With me they were always treacherous and malicious." "Geronimo, My Life: The Auto-biography of Geronimo" GERONIMO!!! The different tribes were the Bedonkohe, Chiehan, Chihenner, Chokonen, Nedni and the White Mountain Apache. by Macarena, Isabel, María Jose , Jorge and Sofía
