History says the Apache were nomadic hundreds of years ago. That changed when we relegated them to their reservations in the 1800s. They became just as urbanized as the rest of America over the centuries that followed, and outside of some fringe reenactment groups they were nearly identical to the America I grew up in. The Shang changed that. Yosemite Station’s ruins achieved a direct hit on the Apache capital and shattered their lives and economy. Those who didn’t come out of the ruins fighting began to rebuild their society and infrastructure so as to make sure that nobody could ever wound them so badly ever again.
