Ojo Caliente Apache (Ojo Calientes)
"Ojo Caliente" was the name of an Apache band of New Mexico. They are
also known as the Chihende or Warm Springs Apache. The name "Ojo Caliente" comes from a Spanish placename on the
band's territory, which literally means "hot spring." After colonization, the Ojo Caliente Apaches merged with other Chiricahua people.
Most Ojo Caliente descendents live in Oklahoma today.
