Whiteriver Unified School District proudly supports the Apache people by implementing the culture into the curriculum.

Some people think our ancestors once lived in Alaska and Western Canada. They also believe the Apaches left Alaska and Canada generations ago and arrived in the four corners area 500 -1000 years ago.

We Apache do not believe we migrated from what are now Alaska and Canada. We believe we have lived here forever. Apaches once roamed all over the Southwest, they were nomads. The children were taught by their parents how to survive. We now live in Eastern Arizona.

Today, Apaches live on the reservation and off. We work as teachers, nurses, doctors, policemen, firemen, cashiers, councilmen, and at the lumber mill. The San Carlos Apache Reservation is south of our reservation. The Black River and the White River join together to make the Salt River. The Black River and the Salt River are the southern borders of the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation.

Thank you and we hope you enjoyed your visit.
