Introduction Travel back in time to discover the wonderful time of the Apache Indians and learn facts and great life time experience.


Houses Mostly Apache men and women lived in houses called wickiups which are simply built with mud, tough wood, and buffalo hide tarp. Wickiups have tiny, but not too small. Like if there is a fire the smoke will go through the hole and not stay in the house. So in conclusion that’s what Apache houses are like and how they are made.


Apache clothing I’m going to tell you about the Apache clothing. Mainly women in the apache tribe would have buckskin dresses for clothing. The Apache didn’t always wear feather war bonnets, but the Plains Apaches adopted these headdresses from their Kiowa allies. Apache men and women mainly wore leather or a special type of cloth instead.


Transportation I am now going to tell you about transportation. Before horses Apache men and women barely used water travel and canoes. Mostly Apaches walked to their destinations. So when horses came to the world it made hunting easier.


Journal entry Dear journal, It’s Christmas Eve and a war which my father is in. My name is Kirsten Hashimoto. It’s only me, my mom, and my sister India. We went underground for shelter. We took all of our belongings with us. Day 2 It’s still going on. I haven’t seen my father lately. Me and India are very worried. So is our mother. Well I hope it will be better tomorrow. Dear journal, I just figured out that last night while I was asleep my father came home!!! I haven’t stoped hugging my father for 1 hour and once again we own the land.
