http://www.petitiononline.com/Geronimo/petition.html The Apache Indians are perhaps one of the best-known tribes in America. The Apache tribes include the Plains Apache (Oklahoma), the Lipan Apache (Texas), Western Apache (Arizona), Chiricahua Apache (Arizona/New Mexico), Jicarilla Apache (New Mexico), and the Mescalero Apache (New Mexico). They were a powerful and warlike tribe, known to be fast to defend their homeland, on account of the tactics of the struggle sometimes referred to as ninja of Southwest.The U.S. Army, in their various confrontations, found them to be fierce warriors and skillful strategists.The Apache and the Navajo spoke a similar dialect from the language known as Athabaskan. Linguistic similarities indicate the Navajo and Apache were once a single ethnic group. The Apaches were typically nomadic, meaning they traveled around, never quite settling in one place. It has been said that they were one of the first tribes to learn how to ride and use horses. Chiricahua Apaches, who had a very strong cultural sense of belonging, jealously guarding their religion and their way of life.From morning to night, from birth to death, the act of Apaches accompanied the rites and prayers. During the healing rituals and dances of war, individual prayer coincided with the collective benefit of all. The ceremonies are called " dances." Among these are the 'rain dance', a 'puberty right', a 'harvest' and 'good crop' dance, and a 'spirit dance'. "Mountain Spirit Dance"- Spirits of the Mountains came in the form of the dancers to renew the ancient covenant with the people N'de. Both the dancers and their dances are of great symbolic importance because they are the mysthic dancers Gan.During a secret ceremony in the mountains imposed ritual masks, and the shaman painted on their bodies sacred symbols. From that moment on, deprived of the face and the names, became the epitome of Spirit Mountain and possessed of great power. They came to a ritual dance during ward off evil forces and bring good, to protect the tribe from disease and ensure its prosperity.Performed dances to the rhythm of the songs of shamans, beating drums and ringing bells are dynamic and require extraordinary physical and spiritual strength. Movements of bodies painted , symbolic gestures holy wands in the shape of swords or crosses, masked faces and elaborate designs on their heads timber packs are delightful.Voices of the singers, rumbling of drums and dancers's ecstasy have a profound the spiritual dimension in which manifested great power of Spirits Mountains. Dancing and singing to pay tribute to the great mystery.The music for dance is sung by the warriors, and accompanied by beating the esadadedne (buck-skin-on-a-hoop). No words are sung - only the tones. The songs have a few words, but are not formal. The singer will occasionally put in such words as he wished instead of the usual tone sound.
