“The Manso Apaches: Native American Auxiliaries on the Spanish Frontier”

September 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

| $5

Not all Apaches were hostile raiders. The “Manso” or friendly Apaches enjoyed beneficial relationships with the Presidio’s Royal Spanish Army and Tucson valley settlers around the turn of the 19th century. This group of Apaches settled and lived in the Santa Cruz River vicinity near the Presidio.

Jim Turner, historian and author, will discuss how these Apaches came to be friendly, where they lived, the essence of the relationship, how long it lasted, and why and when it ended. Join us for some interesting Tucson history.
