Learn about a controversial group of Apache warriors, known as the Apache Scouts, who helped the U.S. Army in the American Southwest during the late 1800’s, in this media gallery from Away Games. Elite hunters, warriors, and raiders, the Apache Scouts helped to track and defeat fellow Apache tribes who were resisting the U.S. Army during the so-called “Indian Wars” between 1866 and 1886. Collaborating with the U.S. Army, they played a decisive role in the European settlement of the American Southwest.
