  • Apache County, Arizona —
    Information Updated for:  Jan 16, 2012

    Established:  14-Feb-1912

    County history - Apache County is named in honor of the Apache Indians, hense these indigenous peoples of North America speak a Southern Athabaskan (Apachean) language, which is related linguistically to the languages of Athabaskan speakers of Alaska and western Canada. The modern term Apache excludes the related Navajo people. However, the Navajo and the other Apache groups are clearly related through culture and language, and thus are considered Apachean. Apachean peoples formerly ranged over eastern Arizona, northwestern Mexico, New Mexico, Texas and the southern Great Plains.
