Apache Mountain Spirit Dancer
 


 
 

 
 The Mescalero Apaches, descendants of Geronimo and his warriors, perform the Crown Dance, also known as 
the Mountain Soirit Dance, around the 4th of July.  They carry painted yucca swords, with lightening bolts 
emitting from them and give out loud Hoot Owl cries.  the headdresses give rise to the anglo name for the dance
, looking much like a large ornate crown.  They dance to ward off evil and disease causing spirits from the people
and the lands they live on, which are the beautifully pine forested Sacramento mountains of South Central New 
Mexico.
