  •  Apaches in Oklahoma? (0+ / 0-)

    Seems a little odd to me, although it is a cool looking plate.

    I'd prefer the famous depiction of Sequoya smoking his pipe. Of course that's probably been censored by now.

      "The Plains Apache are a Southern Athabaskan group that traditionally live on the Southern Plains of North America and today are centered in Southwestern Oklahoma. The tribe is federally recognized as the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma." (From Wikipedia, of course.) Also see: Apache Tribe of Oklahoma

      A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

      And many, many Kiowa-Apaches.

    •  Geronimo, arguably the most famous Apache... (8+ / 0-)

      ...of them all, died in Oklahoma. He was lied to shortly after his surrender in 1886, being told he could return to Arizona in a couple of years. In 1909, he died after complications from pneumonia. He had not seen his homeland for all those years.

      Oklahoma is home to many, many tribes because of forced removal.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

      •  My Misconception (0+ / 0-)

        I first saw Geronimo's grave on a 6th grade class trip to Ft Sill (via a train pulled by a steam locomotive to give you an idea of how long ago that was) and for some reason got the idea that he had been exiled to Lawton in order to keep him from his tribe in Arizona.

        We learned a lot about tribes that started with the letter "C" though.
