Apache Indian wearing deer head while apparently hunting.

The Apache people were hunters and gatherers. This meant that the men hunted buffalo, deer, antelope and the women gathered nuts, seeds, fruits from the environment around them.  However, the Apache tribes did not eat bugs, scaly things, slimy things or anything that lives in water.  They also would not eat anything that ate those things or were believed to have eaten those things.
