Job Description

Primary Care Physician - Outpatient & Urgent Care
Four sacred mountains and mighty warriors

The Community - Mescalero Apache Tribe
The Mescalero people were nomadic hunters and gathers and roamed the Southwest. They were experts in guerrilla warfare and highly skilled horsemen. The women were known for their ability to find and prepare food from many different plant sources. The people were given the name "Mescalero " because they gathered and ate the mescal plant. It was the staple of their diets and could sustain them in good times and bad.

Today, three sub-tribes, Mescalero, Lipan and Chiricahua, make up the Mescalero Apache Tribe. We live on this reservation of 463,000 acres of what once was the heartland of our people's aboriginal homelands.
