Apache Indian History
They are Athabascan or Dene. The Athabascan's or Dene People are really Algonquin Chippewa. Click here to read the 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia. The Delaware are considered by all Algonquian's to be their grandfathers. They all spoke the same language. And they did not come from Asia. It's the other way around. The Algonquin's were motivated by the Seven Fires Prophecy to invade Asia. These Chippewa People known as the Apache, are also Navajo. They are the more southerly Navajo's. Many Chippewa's kept moving west from the Kansas-Oklahoma region into the Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah regions during much of the 19th century. They joined the Chippewa's already living throughout that enite region.
After the United States brought the southwest under their control, the defiant Pueblo Indians (the Apache and Navajo) still continued to fiercely defend their freedom and land, and in fact, the Apache Indians would only increase their raids on the invading white Americans as time progressed on. As for the Pueblo Indians who had been conquered and subjugated by the white Spaniards, they rose up in the late 17th century to gain their independence briefly, but the white Spaniards returned and brought the defiant Pueblo Indians back under white subjugation. It may have been during the Pueblo Rebellion of the late 17th century, when the population of the Apache Indians and Navajo Indians greatly increased. After Mexico and the United States assumed control over the Pueblo Indian Kingdoms, the subjugated Pueblo Indians peacefully agreed to the terms set down by the Mexicans and Americans.
By the 1860s, the invading American whites had started to settle down in Arizona and New Mexico, but their numbers were small (most white Americans were going to California), yet would increase after the Civil War. With the increasing numbers of white Americans starting to settle down in Arizona, New Mexico and western Texas, the defiant Pueblo Indians (the Apache and Navajo) became very concerned about their freedom and land, and started to send large numbers of their brave soldiers out to wage war on white American civilians and white American military troops. In Mexico, the Lipan Apache were prone to launch raids on the whites of western Texas.
Chippewa's had already been waging war on the American whites of Texas for decades by 1860. They likely started to merge with the more westerly Chippewa's (the Lipan Apache) to launch raids on the American whites of Texas. During the early 1860s, the Americans started to eradicate the Indian Reservations they created in Kansas, and that led to the Kansas Chippewa's agreeing to flee to Mexico to join up with the Chippewa's already long established in Mexico.
The Apache and other Chippewa's including the Seminole and Mexican bandits, repeatedly sent their brave soldiers into Texas to kill, rob and steal what they could. Anywhere from 500 to more than 2,000 Texans were killed and large numbers of livestock were stolen. By the early 1880s that war was over, but the Apache Indians were still on the offensive over in Arizona, Mexico, New Mexico and in extreme western Texas.
During the late 1860s, the Americans created Reservations for the defiant Pueblo Indians (the Apache and Navajo) in Arizona and New Mexico, and for the most part it worked out, excepting certain groups of Apache and Navajo who refused to follow the orders of their leaders. Those defiant Pueblo Indian leaders were Cochise, Geronimo, and Victorio. They led their brave soldiers out on raids against the invading American whites, killing large numbers of them, and stealing large numbers of their livestock. Most fled into northern Mexico to live. By 1886, Geronimo surrendered and the last defiant Pueblo Indian resistance gave in. It will be very important for the current Pueblo Indians of Arizona and New Mexico, to recognize the Apache Indians and Navajo Indians as being the defiant Pueblo Indians who refused to be subjugated by the whites, because after the first whites (the Spanish) subjugated the highly civilized Pueblo Indians, we know that there had to be defiant Pueblo Indians, and since the surrounding terrain was rugged, it offered to them protection.
Of all known Native American civilizations in the America's, it is the highly advanced Pueblo Indian civilization that is the one that stands out. Those Pueblo kivas were in all likelihood bath houses which had indoor plumbing. There are so many Pueblo buildings which were constructed in a circle manner, it can only leave you in awe. Their architecture is in my opinon unequaled in the America's. Just looking at all the circlular constructed Pueblo buildings tells experts that the Pueblo Indian civilization was highly advanced. Yet the whites almost totally ignore them. Then the age of the Pueblo Indian civilization is far older than what the whites claim. The Pueblo Indian civilization is much older.
