About Indian heritage
Gilans (Gila Apaches, Gilan)
"Gilan" or "Gila Apache" was the name of an Apache band of New Mexico. They are Chiricahua speakers,
also known as the Chihende or Warm Springs Apaches. The Gila Apaches have merged with other Chiricahua people.
Most Gilan descendents live in Oklahoma today.
