Apacheria was the term used to designate the region inhabited by the Apache people. The earliest written records have it as a region extending from north of the Arkansas River into what are now the northern states of Mexico and from Central Texas through New Mexico to Central Arizona.
Most notable were the Apaches of the Great Plains in the eastern area of Apacheria, located:
- south of the Arkansas River in Kansas and eastern Colorado
- in Eastern New Mexico
- in the Llano Estacado and Central Great Plains of western Oklahoma and Texas, east of the Pecos River and north of the Edwards Plateau.
In the early 18th century, the Comanche expanded out of present-day Wyoming into the lands that then became known as Comancheria displacing other tribes. The Apache were forced to move southward and westward as a result.
