I recently had to travel to Phoenix for work and I gave some thought to what impression I would do if I lived there. You have a very rich history of native america in the Southwest, whether it is "prehistoric" indians like the anasazi or hohokam, or from the period of the fur trade. I have always felt that you should try to portray an impression from where you currently live. It seems your physical area would greatly enhance your trekking experience. It would be hard to live in the northeast and portray an apache from the desert.
Try the books by Tom Brown Jr for info on tracking and natural skills. Tom was taught by an apache elder when he grew up. The southwest is truly magical and enchanting, I've been bitten by the bug. For now I have to settle for prowling the woods and hills in southern missouri, tough work, but you have to do what you can do!

This has been up quite a while without a nibble,

Mike here, I have a place Im eventually retiring to in West Texas..on the NEastern border of I believe what was once the Chuiracaua Apache homeland...I do think I would ever consider reenacting as an Apache but I would like to learn and the skills that an Apache would need to live in that country...I am also learning the Apache language(s) as opportunities present. Its a very interesting language...Mike

I am currently researching the Karankawa [ ClamcoŽhs, and called in their language Auia ] for living history in Texas, primarily the tribe's battle with Lafitte in Galveston (c. 1819) and subsequent fighting / raiding with Texas settlers (1800 - 1858) until the tribe's dissapearance ( some author's have termed it "extermination") in Mexico.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone in Texas or the Gulf Coast, specifically Texas Rev War types who are interested.

Regards,
Michael
