Four Apache Indians huddle in foreground of what is identified as an Arapoho hunting camp, ca. 1867-1874. Note meat hanging over drying racks. During the 1860s and 1870s, Indians competed not only with other tribes for buffalo but with Anglo hunters who swarmed over the Plains taking adavntage of the lucrative hide market.
