Apachest
The Apache are a collection of tribes living in what is now the southwestern United States. The Apache were a nomadic people who hunted buffalo for subsistence, but now live a sedentary existence in the Four Corners region. There are approximately 12,000 Apache currently living in the United States. Notable Apache historical figures include Mangas Coloradas as well as Cochise and Geronimo. The Apache Nation's inclusion on this calendar does not indicate an endorsement of either The Apache Software Foundation or Apache Digital Corporation, both of which should return their domain names to the Native Americans. Nor does it indicate approval of the various wars around the world in which the Apache attack helicopter has played a significant role.
