CHOICE Review

Between 1973 and 1977, the Fort Apache Scout newspaper of the Fort Apache Reservation published a 28-part series, using oral traditions and documentation to create a tribal history intertwining the experiences of the White Mountain and Cibecue bands that formed the White Mountain Apache Tribe. This work presents those original articles, illustrated and edited, to honor the original staff and distinguish Fort Apache as a hub in perpetuating Apache culture and history. The book opens with a condensed version of Apache origins, illustrating the centrality of land, culture, and history to Apache identity, followed by an overview of the Apache arrival in the Southwest. The remaining essays include accounts about how the Apache struggled to retain their lands and cultural life ways in the wake of European contact, spanning from the Spanish entrada to American incursions. Each chapter details the range of strategies, from open resistance to accommodation, employed by leaders and ancestors throughout their interactions with non-Apaches. In the end, Apache leaders negotiated through shifting Indian policies and the tightening US military presence to secure aboriginal lands as the Fort Apache Reservation. The work is testimony to the struggle to protect their people lands and freedom. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries. --Gregory Ray Campbell, The University of Montana
