The Apache was a tribe of the Southwest, especially Arizona, New Mexico and Texas as well as northern Mexico. These hunters/warriors were always on the move and needed simple, easy to construct housing. Most Apache lived in wickiups which were simple wooden frames covered with brush or a buffalo hide. They could be constructed in two hourse. Some Apache also used buffalo-hide teepees.
