Red Crystal Serpent/ Red Electric Earth - Resonant Monkey Moon of Attunement, Day 4
Apache Nation Medicine Shield
Apache (probably from Apachu, 'enemy,' the Zuni name for the Navajo, who were designated "Apaches de Nabaju" by the early Spaniards in New Mexico). A number of tribes forming the most southerly group of the Athabaskan family. The name has been applied also to some unrelated Yuman tribes, as the Apache Mohave (Yavapai) and Apache Yuma.
Being a nomadic people, the Apache practiced agriculture only to a limited extent before their permanent establishment on reservations. They subsisted chiefly on the products of the chase and on roots (especially that of the maguey) and berries. Although fish and bear were found in abundance in their country they were not eaten, being taboo as food. They had few arts, but the women attained high skill in making baskets. Their dwellings were shelters of brush, which were easily erected by the women and were well adapted to their arid environment and constant shifting. In physical appearance the Apache vary greatly, but are rather above the medium height. They are good talkers, are not readily deceived, and are honest in protecting property placed in their care, although they formerly obtained their chief support from plunder seized in their forays.
Kin 25: Red Crystal Serpent
I dedicate in order to survive
I seal the store of life force
With the crystal tone of cooperation
I am guided by the power of navigation.
That which is hidden or non-manifest exists in a world beyond human perceptions, which we know as the imaginal world.*
