The White Mountain Apache Tribe consists of 15,000 members most of whom live in and around Whiteriver, Arizona. The Fort Apache Reservation located in east-central Arizona boasts some of the richest habitats in the region. The Apaches are a people with a great history in the southwest and continue their life today in keeping with their cultural heritage.
