The White Mountain Apache Tribe extends a cordial invitation to you to
atend a ceremony September 19, 1997, at Fort Apache, Arizona. The Tribe
will be celebrating the designation of Fort Apache as one of the world's
100 irreplaceable, endangered cultural heritage sites by the World
Monuments Watch. Fort Apache is the only Arizona location, and the first
tribal site to be chosen. The ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the old
military parade ground with speeches by Tribal dignitaries, followed by
entertainment and an Apache-style Barbeque. During the afternoon, tour
guides will be available to show visitors historic sites, including General
Crook's log cabin, officer's row, the military cemetery, the Apache
village, and the newly opened Apache Cultural Center, Nowike' Bagowa,
"House of Our Footprints." The Tribe's master plan for economic development
calls for the eventual restoration of the fort which has attracted tourists
