About San Carlos Apache Tribe

The San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation spans Gila, Graham, and Pinal Counties in Southeastern Arizona, roaming over a landscape that ranges from alpine meadows to desert. Encompassing 1,834,781 acres, the San Carlos Apache Reservation was established by executive order on November 9, 1871.

Over one-third of the community’s land is forested (175,000 acres) or wooded (665,000 acres). Forest lands, with their jumbled topography, create a naturally superior habitat for many wildlife species causing elk, mule deer, turkeys, black bear and mountain lion to be at home on this reservation. A portion of the reservation is contiguous with the largest stand of ponderosa pines in the world.

The Apache people have deep spiritual and cultural ties to the natural world where everything has a purpose and a spirit that pervades throughout the Apache universe.

Our History

The stories of the San Carlos Apaches are tied to their land which covers more than 1.8 million acres of Sonoran Desert and alpine forests.

The Apaches are descendent of the Athabascan family who migrated to the Southwest in the 10th century. Over time, many bands of Apache were relocated to the reservation from their traditional homelands, which once extended through Arizona and New Mexico.
