Pacer - Jicarilla Apache 1879

  1. The Jicarilla Apache wer warriors and were intolerant of BS. They along with the other Apache were forced to reservations. Then they hit the warpath. Were brought to ground by the Army with the survivors returned to the reservation...where they hit the warpath again. They were among the last Indians to be conquered by the Army. Since they lived off the land, you couldn't just kill the buffalo to defeat them the way that USGOV did with the Comanche and other plains tribes.

    There's a lot of chatter about this and that - peaceful red men, etc. But they weren't before the whites arrived with iron weapons, great numbers, whiskey and European diseases. They liked to fight. And they had to fight. In the end, it was the whiskey that finished them off.
