The Apaches are descendants of the Athabascan family who migrated southwest in the 10th century. Over time, many Apache bands were moved to the reservation from their traditional homelands of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Mexico, and California. The San Carlos Apache Reservation was created by executive order on November 9, 1871. The San Carlos Apache Tribal Lands encompass 1.8 million acres of breathtaking land that traverses three regions of desert, plateau and mountain landscapes .
