Pedro, Eskeltesela and Miguel

You remember the great peace meeting near Camp Grant, where the Indian children were given back, and how old Santos put the white stone down and said that as long as it lasted there would be no war.

Akonye (people of the canyon). An Apache band at San Carlos agency and Ft Apache, Ariz., in 1881; probably coordinate with the Khonagani clan of the Navaho. Bourke in Journ. Am. Folk-Lore, III, 111, 1890. Apaches del Perrillo (Span.: Apaches of the little dog ). A band of Apache occupying, in the 16th and 17th centuries, the region of the Jornada del Muerto, near the Rio Grande, in

Coyotero Apache Tribe

Coyoteros Indians, Coyoteros Tribe (Span.: wolf-men; so called in consequence, it is said, of their subsisting partly on coyotes or prairie wolves; but it seems more probable that the name was applied on account of their roving habit

White Mountain Apache Tribe

White Mountain Apache. Formerly the Sierra Blanca Apache, a part of the Coyoteros, so called on account of their mountain home. The name is now applied to all the Apache under Ft Apache agency, Arizona, consisting of Arivaipa, Tsiltaden or Chilion, Chiricahua, Coyotero, Mimbreño, and Mogollon. In 1910 they numbered 2,269. Capt. Bourke in 1881-82 obtained at Fort Apache and San Carlos agencies the following names of bands or clans: Akonye Chilchadilkloge Chiltneyadnaye Destchin Gontiel Indelchidnti Inoschuhochen Iyaaye Kaihatin Kaynaguntl Kiyahani Klokadakaydn Mayndeshkish Natatladiltin Natootzuzn Peiltzun Satchin Tizsessenaye Tseskadin Tuakay Tudisishn Tushtun Tutonashkisd Tutzone Tzaedelkay Tzebinaste Tzecheschinne Tzetseskadn Tzintzilchutzikadn Tziseketzillan
