Abstract: This document is divided into two parts, the first of which, written by M. E. Opler, a professional anthropologist, presents an introduction to the Mescalero and Chiricahua cultures, and covers such information as linguistic and ethnic affiliations, location, band and local group organization, cultural differences between the Mescalero and Chiricahua, geographical setting, relation to natural surroundings, material culture, social organization, ceremonial life, hunting, agriculture, the training of a boy for raid and warfare, mythology, games and social dances, and death. The second half of this source, written by E. F. Castetter, a biologist, provides abundant data on the plants used by the Mescalero and Chiricahua Apache for food, drink, and narcotic purposes. An alphabetical listing of common, Apache, and scientific names of plants to which reference has been made in the text will be found at the end of this section.
