Description

Reproduction of a charcoal drawing of Go-Shono, a Mescalera Apache medicine man.

The Mescalero were essentially nomadic hunters and warriors, dwelling at one place for a temporary time in a brush shelter known as a “Wicki up”; short rounded dwellings made of twigs or teepees made of elk hides and buffalo hides. The Mescalero roamed freely throughout the Southwest including Texas, Arizona, Chihuahua, México and Sonora, México.

Today, three sub-tribes, Mescalero, Lipan and Chiricahua, make up the Mescalero Apache Tribe. They live on a reservation of 463,000 acres of what once was the heartland of their people’s aboriginal homelands.
