By Eva Tulene Watt and Keith H. Basso
Eva Tulene Watt, a White Mountain Apache born in 1913, tells what it was like growing up and living with wrenching social change. In 200 hours of interviews, she told of the persons she knew or who touched her life, cultural characteristics, travels, daily life, and the Apaches’ relationship with the government and church. She recounts events, including many homey family happenings, that shed light on the culture. Especially interesting are her stories of the boarding schools.
