The Great Seal of Jicarilla Apache Nation


The Jicarilla Apache Short Video on My YouTube Channel

"The Jicarilla Apache Nation is located in the scenic mountains and rugged mesas of northern New Mexico near the Colorado border. There are approximately 2,755 tribal members, most of whom live in the town of Dulce."

"The Jicarilla Apaches, by many accounts, have invested wisely. Or at least, ambitiously. Among their purchases are some of the biggest properties in the area adjoining their more than 800,000-acre reservation in north-central New Mexico. In purchasing the Theis, El Poso and mostly recently, Willow Creek ranches for roughly $40 million, the tribe has increased its land holdings by at least one-tenth.The Great Seal of the Jicarilla Apaches, framed by an outline of the old reservation, still hasn't caught up with the new geographic realities. ….it's the Jicarilla’s vision of how to care for the land - not just their willingness to buy it - that entices potential sellers.”
