In this Timothy O’Sullivan photograph from 1873, three fierce-looking Apache braves are dressed ready for war. And between them, they carry the full range of weaponry most commonly used by Apache men: a bow, a rifle, and a spear. Yet although members of the tribe have been stereotyped as aggressively warlike, they mostly lived peaceably with their neighbors. There were just over 110,000 Apache people living in the U.S. in 2010, according to official census figures. Photo Credit: Sepia Times/Universal Images Group via Getty Images
