Our History Our History Located in Chaves County, Roswell is a growing city that is home to a thriving population of almost 50, residents. Roswell is well known not only for aliens, but for their hospitality in welcoming new businesses while supporting existing ones and visitors alike. The first non-indigenous or Hispanic settlers of the area around Roswell were a group of pioneers from Missouri, who attempted to start a settlement 15 miles 24 km southwest of what is now Roswell in but were forced to abandon the site because of a lack of water.
Apache reservations are also located in Arizona and New Mexico. In Oklahoma, the Apache land was allotted in severalty under the General Allotment Act of also known as the Dawes Act ; Oklahoma Apaches became citizens of the new state of Oklahoma and of the United States in Apaches in Arizona and New Mexico were not granted U.
Since attempting to terminate its governmental relationship with Indian tribes in the s, the United States has since adopted a policy of assisting the tribes in achieving some measure of self-determination, and the U.
Supreme Court has upheld some attributes of sovereignty for Indian nations. In recent years Apache tribal enterprises such as ski areas, resorts, casinos, and lumber mills have helped alleviate chronically high rates of unemployment on the reservations, and bilingual and bicultural educational programs have resulted from direct Apache involvement in the educational process.
As ofthe U. Census Bureau reported that 53, people identified themselves as Apache, up from 35, in Apaches became known to the Spanish during authorized and illegal Spanish exploratory expeditions into the Southwest during the sixteenth century, beginning with the Coronado expedition ofbut including a number of others, at intervals, throughout the century.
The expedition successfully colonized the area, and by the town of Santa Fe had been founded. Until the arrival of the Spanish, the Apaches and the Pueblos had enjoyed a mercantile relationship: Pueblos traded their agricultural products and pottery to the Apaches in exchange for buffalo robes and dried meat.
The annual visits of whole Apache tribes for trade fairs with the Pueblos, primarily at the pueblos of Taos and Picuris, were described with awe by the early Spaniards in the region. The Spanish, however, began annually to confiscate the Pueblo trade surpluses, thereby disrupting the trade.
Nonetheless some Apaches, notably the Jicarillas, became friends and allies of the Spanish. A small group broke away from the Eastern Apaches in the s and migrated into Texas and northern Mexico.
This band became known as the Lipan Apaches and was subsequently enslaved by Spanish explorers and settlers from Mexico in the s. They were forced to work on ranches and in mines. The historic southward migration of the Comanche Nation, beginning aroundwas devastating for the Eastern Apaches. By about the Comanches had established authority throughout the whole of the Southern Plains region, pushing the Eastern Apaches the Jicarillas north of Santa Fe, and the Mescaleros south of Santa Fe into the mountains of the front range of the Rockies in New Mexico.
Denied access to the buffalo herds, the Apaches turned to Spanish cattle and horses.
When the Spanish were able to conclude a treaty of peace with the Comanches inthey employed large bodies of Comanche and Navajo auxiliary troops with Spanish regulars, in implementing an Apache policy that pacified the entire Southwestern frontier by Each individual Apache group was hunted down and cornered, then offered a subsidy sufficient for their maintenance if they would settle near a Spanish mission, refrain from raiding Spanish livestock, and live peacefully.
One by one, each Apache group accepted the terms. The peace, though little studied by modern scholars, is thought to have endured until near the end of the Spanish colonial era. The start of the Mexican War with the United States in disrupted the peace, and by the time the United States moved into the Southwest at the conclusion of the Mexican War inthe Apaches posed an almost unsolvable problem.
The Americans, lacking both Spanish diplomatic skills and Spanish understanding of the Apaches, sought to subjugate the Apaches militarily, an undertaking that was not achieved until the final surrender of Geronimo's band in Some Apaches became prisoners of war, shipped first to Florida, then to Alabama, and finally to Oklahoma.
Others entered a period of desultory reservation life in the Southwest. The San Carlos Reservation in eastern Arizona occupies 1, acres and has a population of more than 6, In the s the San Carlos Reservation established a business committee, which was dominated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
