This even-handed history of the Jicarilla Apache tribe of New Mexico highlights their long history of cultural adaptation and change -- both to new environments and cultural traits. Concentrating on the modern era, 1846-1970, Veronica Tiller, herself a Jicarilla Apache, tells of the tribes economic adaptations and relations with the United States government. Originally published in 1983, this revised edition updates the account of the Jicarilla experience, documenting the significant economic, political, and cultural changes that have occurred as the tribe has exercised ever greater autonomy in recent years.
