Welcome to the Fort Sill Apache Tribe, a vibrant community that traces its lineage back to the Chiricahua and Warm Springs Apaches. Our ancestors resided in southwestern New Mexico, southeastern Arizona, and northern Mexico until they were forcibly displaced from their homelands and held as Prisoners of War by the United States from 1886 to 1914. After their release, 81 former Prisoners of War received allotments in Oklahoma, and their descendants form the Fort Sill Apache Tribe.

Our tribal territory encompasses trust lands in southwestern Oklahoma and southeastern Arizona. Within our historic aboriginal territory lies our federally recognized reservation, nestled in Akela, New Mexico. The heart of our ancestral homeland beats here. The tribal headquarters is located two miles north of Apache, Oklahoma.

With approximately 813 tribal members, our community proudly carries forward the legacy of our ancestors. More than half of our members are over the age of 18, with roughly 300 residing in Oklahoma. The rest of our community members are scattered across the United States and Puerto Rico.
