Cedar People

"Cedar People" was the name of a Plains Apache band of Oklahoma. It is the English translation of the band's name for themselves in their own language, Káłt'inde (also spelled Khattleendeh or Gratinde,) which literally means "cedar people." The Cedar People do not exist as a distinct tribe today. They have merged with other Plains Apache bands and formed a joint tribe called the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma.
