  The Apache people lived in many regions throughout southeastern
  Arizona and New Mexico.  The men hunted the animals that roamed the
  mountains, and the women gathered and harvested both wild foods and
  the foods that they cultivated on the land.
  
  This recipe is based on a traditional stew that was taught to me by a
  San Carlos medicine man during one of my visits to his ranch.  When I
  prepare the stew now, I can vividly remember the tapping of his
  traditional water drum and the songs he chanted in his native Apache
  tongue. Through his songs, he asked for all people to walk in harmony
  with Mother Earth and be guided by the spirit of the mountains and
  the spirit of his drum. I still remember the sincerity and yearning
  of his songs.
  
  Depending on what type of produce was available, the ingredients
  added to the venison varied each time the stew was prepared.  This
  recipe includes the basics of the stew, but you can substitute other
  vegetables.
