Apache Language Resources

Typing in Apache

All of the SCAC lab computers running Windows have the Apache Language keyboard layout installed. To change between the standard US English keyboard and the Nnee Biyáti’ (Western Apache) keyboard, click on the keyboard layout switcher in the system tray at the bottom right of the Desktop. (Conversely, if you’re trying to type in English and you keep getting unexpected accent marks, etc, when typing punctuation marks like the colon, semicolon, and square bracket keys, the Apache keyboard may be enabled and you may need to switch it back to the US English keyboard.)

Windows 10 Keyboard Switcher

Below is the keymap for setting the various diacritics and accent marks. (You must enable the Western Apache keyboard layout to use this keymap.) Here are also the marks for people who would prefer to copy and paste:

Chairman’s Message

Welcome to the San Carlos Apache College website.  I hope this message finds you in good spirits.

The San Carlos Apache Tribal Council is proud of its initiative to provide higher education, through our Apache College, to our children.  This has been a lifelong dream of our people.  This dream has been reinforced through a survey of our people who have stated education is the most important issue facing us today.

We are happy with our Apache College Board of Regents’ efforts in opening the doors to our Apache College this August 2017.  We are thankful to the partnerships we have established with the Gila Community College, Arizona State University, and the Tohono O’odham Community College. I encourage all our high school students to seriously consider our Apache College to further your education.

We envision our Apache College combining personal attention with cultural relevance, in such a way as to encourage our children to pursue higher education at our Apache College, help stem the tide of scholarship dropouts, and to better meet the educational needs of our children.

Thank you,

Terry Rambler, Chairman
San Carlos Apache Tribal Council
