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