History Of New Mexico In Pictures


Naiche – Chiricahua Apache: Naiche was the son of the greatest Apache chiefs, Cochise, and the grandson of another, Mangas Coloradas. Naiche enlisted as a scout at Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory, in 1897, when this photo was likely taken. He worked successfully to move the Apaches at Fort Sill to the Mescalero Apache Reservation in New Mexico.
