San Carlos Apache Tribe
The San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation encompasses 1.8 million acres of pristine land spanning across three regions of mountain country, desert and plateau landscapes.
The Apaches are decendants of the Athabascan family, which migrated to the Southwest in the 10th century. Later, as reservations were being established, the bands of Apache, who were placed at San Carlos, became one Tribe recognized as the San Carols Apaches.
Today, the San Carlos Apache Reservation is home to approximately 12,000 Apaches with an abundance of natural resources and rich cultural heritage.
