Chiricahua Apache: The Sacred Return

Saturday, October 10, 2020

Silver City and the GIla forest are at the center of the Nde Benah - traditional homelands of the Chiricahua Apache. From the mid 1800s to the early 1900s, Apache bands living in the area were scattered, executed, or sent to distant lands to perish, Join Joe Saenz and Doug Dinwiddie as they offer insights on the return of Apaches to the Gila Region and the plans to establish a Chiricahua and Warm Springs Apache headquarters at Fort Bayard where the Apache can sustain and celebrate their heritage and again be a voice for protecting the their original territory. This special program is co-sponsored by the Silver City Museum and the Western Institute for Lifelong Learning.
