“The real Indian story”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

My wife grew up in New Mexico near the Mescalero Apache Reservation (near Cloudcroft, NM) and thought she knew about them. There is much more than she heard in school. The area of the present reservation was originally their homelands, but as Americans came into the area before the Civil War the Indians resisted. In 1863, the U.S. government sent them on a "Long Walk" from their mountainous home to this desolate, flat, barren area and kept them there until 1868. Its a tragic story, but not one that should be forgotten.
The state has built an impressive new museum loaded with pictures on the site of the original Ft. Sumner. Its worth going south from IH 40 to see.
