Description

Apache Indian Scout with lever action rifle. 

The Apache Scouts were part of the United States Army Indian Scouts. Most of their service was during the Apache Wars, between 1849 and 1886, though the last scout retired in 1947. The Apache scouts were the eyes and ears of the United States military and sometimes the cultural translators for the various Apache bands and the Americans.

Most wore no uniforms, dressing like all orther Apaches geared for war. Cloth headbands or stetson hats were used to hold back their hair from their eyes; they wore cloth breechclouts or cotton tunics with loose fitting trousers and moccasins or army boots and socks. The White man's vest was also popular.
