This year marks 150 years since President Ulysses S. Grant signed the executive order establishing the Mescalero Apache Reservation. Although a fraction of the wide territory the Mescalero originally occupied, the establishment of the New Mexico reservation marked a stable place where the tribe could call home and practice their ceremonies and traditions after decades of conflict with the U.S. Government. It’s now also a center of economic development and natural resource management.
