Carlana Apaches (Carlanas)
"Carlana" was the name of an Eastern Apache tribe of southern Colorado. They were
probably speakers of Jicarilla Apache, and merged with other Jicarilla groups in the 18th century.
"Carlana" was a name given to them
by early Spanish explorers, and was sometimes used to refer to the Jicarillas in general.
