Introduction

Soldier Canyon is a tactic or martial art of the Apaches among the American Indian tribes. The warriors were at the forefront of tribal defense, and were respected by the people. They were decorated with a unique hairband and they fought with a sacred sword.

History

Historically, the Apache homelands have consisted of high mountains, sheltered and watered valleys, deep canyons, deserts, and the southern Great Plains, including areas in what is now Eastern Arizona, Northern Mexico(Sonora and Chihuahua) and New Mexico, West Texas, and Southern Colorado. These areas are collectively known as Apacheria. The Apache tribes fought the invading Spanish and Mexican peoples for centuries. The first Apache raids on Sonora appear to have taken place during the late 17th century.

By the mid-1800s, the Apaches were primarily a raiding tribe, collecting money for scalps or raiding for materials(steel, food, etc). They were masters of combat and stealth.

In 19th-century-confrontations during the American-Indian wars, the U.S. Army found the Apache to be fierce warriors and skillful strategists.

Today, the Soldier Canyon Organization, under the non-profit organization named American Intangible Cultural Heritage, is working for preserving its culture.
