"Bidanku" was the name of an Apache band of New Mexico. It is their own tribal name for themselves,
coming from an Apache word meaning "in the front at the end" (referring to their territory at the edge of Apache lands.)
The Bidanku Apaches were Chiricahua speakers,
also known as the Bedonkohe or Mogollon Apaches. The Bidankus merged with other Chiricahua people,
and today most Bidanku descendents live in the Fort Sill Apache tribe in Oklahoma.
