Fort Sill Apache

"Fort Sill Apache Tribe" is the name of a Native American nation of Oklahoma. The Fort Sill Apache people are predominantly Chiricahua and Warm Springs Apaches from New Mexico and Arizona, and they have a unique history: the Fort Sill reservation was created by the US government as a prisoner-of-war camp for Chiricahua people who surrendered at the end of the Apache Wars. Many of these displaced Chiricahua people ended up returning to New Mexico and merged into the Mescalero Nation, but others remained in Fort Sill where their descendants live to this day.
