Quero Apache diiyin (HolyOne) and author Maria Yracébûrû has led the kind of nomadic life that’s reminiscent of her ancestors. A recent survivor of a lightning strike, Yracébûrû has been honored by the Inkan elders as “Laika” (holyone). She’s held in high regard by her community. She is a highly trained and trusted individual, instructed by her grandfather the late Juan Ten Bears Yracébûrû, in the task of remembering and telling the history of her clan. Maria not only remembers the past and traditions of her clan, but she is something of an entertainer, historian, priest, counselor, eco-psychologist, storyteller, and understands and teaches the meaning and origin of ceremony.

I've taken the time to translate an article that appeared in the Imparcial
Newspaper of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico on July 17, 1996. The article was written by Rodolfo Rascon to correct and clarify points he had made in a series of 7 articles he wrote spanning from 01/18/88 through 04/16/95, regarding the last Apaches in Sonora that survived in the Sierra Madre into the 1930's. His articles were based on oral histories from people in northeastern Sonora. These corrections were made as a result of feedback from readers with knowledge of the subject and further investigation. The prior 7 articles are not available on the internet. From this article, one does get an idea of the subject matter of the previous stories and if
someone is interested in studying further, this can give them reference in seeking the hard copies.

Apache Prophecy of this Time Long ago, in the future of time, the Changing Mother earth began to move. Storms came upon the land, and the waters spoke words of truth. Then the Dreamer came to the people and said to them…
