Apache Sky Casino is owned by the San Carlos Apache Tribe and is a sister property to Apache Gold Casino Resort. In February of 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony for Apache Sky took place on this 170-acre site at the southern tip of the San Carlos Apache Nation. The casino officially opened its door in April of 2017, welcoming gamers and guests to the property. The Tribe’s ancestral lands once stretched across Arizona into New Mexico. Historically, the San Carlos Apache were hunters, and they have deep cultural and spiritual ties to the land. The tribe has made the decision to keep most of its land in a natural state, which protects the habitat for big and small game, and allows the Apache to preserve their special and personal relationship with the natural world.
