History

The Abiquiu Agency was established in 1854 with responsibility for the Capote Ute and the Jicarilla Apache in northwestern New Mexico. With the establishment of the Cimarron Agency in 1862, the Jicarilla Apache were transferred to that agency and the Abiquiu Agency had responsibility for the Capote and Wiminuche Ute. The Abiquiu Agency was consolidated with the Pueblo Agency in 1878 and the Ute Indians were assigned to the Southern Ute Agency in Colorado. The name was changed to the Jicarilla Agency in 1881 and the supervision of the agency was transferred to the Mescalero Agency in southern New Mexico in 1882.
