The Apache people were nomads and lived in Arizona and New Mexico. The name comes from the Zuni word apachu (enemy). They moved in smaller groups or clans and lived in cabins made of earth and bushes, called wickyups. There were 6 main tribes: Jicarilla, Mescalero, Chiricahua, Mimbrenos, San Carlos and Coyotero. There were nearly none solidarity between the tribes and they fought in smaller groups.
