About this title


The Jicarilla Apache lived in what is now Northern New Mexico and Eastern Colorado. Their name means 'Little Baskets'. Along with the Navaho they were among the southernmost of the Athabascans. They are grouped with the Plains indians, due to their nomadic life and reliance on Buffalo hunting. However, a large portion of the Jicarilla occupied mountainous areas. The animated movie 'Spirit, Stallion of the Cimmarons', depicts the beautiful Jicarilla territory.

The texts contain myths and legends (including many trickster stories), stories of war and hunting, and a few ethnographic details. The stories were collected at the close of the frontier, and Mexicans and Americans (including Kit Carson) show up as actors in some of the historical texts. It is important to note that at this time Plains culture had been greatly impacted by cultural contact with Europeans. (Quote from
