          Hello Lucia, and thank you for you interest in History Hub.

           

          Is the name of the Native American Blasa Fiero Alvarado? Do you know when they lived? You may want to contact the tribe, depending on if you  know which one it may be.

           

          There are three Native American Apache tribes in New Mexico: the Jicarilla Apache, located in northern New Mexico near the Colorado Border; the Mescalero Apache, located near Ruidoso; and the Fort Sill Apache near Deming.

          Depending on the time period, you may also want to look up census records.

            Hi Lucia,

             

            I am happy to look around, but a little more info. would be needed. In addition to any of the information that Jeremy suggested, knowing at least an approximate time frame and any other relatives would be extremely helpful.

             

            Thank you,
