San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation

San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation Review

Established in 1871 for various Apache tribes, the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation covers 1.8 million acres southeast of Salt River Canyon. One-third of the reservation is covered with forest, and the rest is desert. The San Carlos Apaches number about 12,500 and are noted for their beadwork and basketry. Peridot, a beautiful yellow-green stone resembling the emerald, is mined near the town of the same name and made into jewelry.
