A band of Jicarilla Apaches settled in and around Abiquiu between 1852 and 1878, after which they were moved to the present Jicarilla Reservation at Dulce, N.M. The first Spaniards to settle in New Mexico arrived in the summer of 1598.
Prior to the Pueblo revolt (1680) Pueblo lands remained in the possession of the Indians because the early Spaniards were not tillers of the soil.
The unstable Chama Valley settlements persisted from then on and Abiquiu was the northwestern edge of Spanish settlement for the remainder of the eighteenth century.
