Mescalero Apache Tribe invites BID’s from qualified, license contractors to provide all services related to the re-construct and repairs of the Mescalero Apache Tribal Store.
The Mescalero Apache Tribal Store is a small grocery/convenience store located at 190 Chiricahua Plaza, Mescalero, NM. The Store serves the Tribal community and the general public. The Store offers grocery and convenience items, cigarettes, butcher meats, souvenirs and hot foods. The exterior front lobby of the Store’s building was damaged in a motor vehicle accident. The damage impedes access to the Store and must be repaired as soon as possible.
II. PROJECT GOALS
A. Make repairs necessary: properly remove damaged material in the exterior lobby, reinforce all metal bars that were affected by the accident to ensure safety and security, repair ceiling tiles, replace several large windows, and any and all other repairs necessary to ensure entrance into the store will be secured after repairs are completed.
B. Store needs to remain open while under construction so it will be the responsibility of the contractor to ensure that a section is cordoned off if necessary to keep the store operating and will not affect patrons in/out of the store.
C. Provide onsite observation to ensure that all repairs are done correctly, in a timely manner and as outlined in Section II, A, above.

With a huge crowd of Mescalero Lady Chiefs basketball fans filling the Dreamstyle Arena, a.k.a. The Pit, our ladies took the 2A Girls State Basketball Runner Up trophy. Either outcome, we are ecstatic of the ladies accomplishments! This team is the first to take Mescalero to the New Mexico State Championships and they did so with grit.
With multiple upsets as the ladies climbed the ladder to the championships, one of the biggest was defeating No.1 Texico in the 2nd round of the State tournament. Not to mention, making school history being the first team to play in the State Championships!
Needless to say, we are very proud of these young ladies on a job well done and blazing the trail for generations to come – you are examples of hard work and dedication.
We also recognize other supporters of Mescalero Lady Chief basketball across Indian Country and we thank you for showing support!

Five schools in New Mexico were being recognized nationally for inspiring change in their local communities through STEM education, including Mescalero Apache School.
Upon the five state finalist schools in New Mexico, Mescalero Apache School has just been named New Mexico state winner in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest – a nationwide competition that challenges students to creatively use STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills to address real-world issues in their communities.
The state finalist schools were chosen based on their creative and strategic proposals to solve complicated issues that affect their communities by using STEM learning. Each 50 state winners (representing the 50 states) will receive $20,000 in technology and will advance in the next phase of the contest to compete for additional prizes and educational opportunities.
With $2 million, based on an estimated retail value, in technology on the line, teachers like Mr. Nate Raynor submitted a detailed lesson plan outlining how Mescalero students will tackle a local issue using STEM skills to ultimately improve their greater community.
Now, the 50 state winners including Mescalero Apache School will submit a three-minute video, using a Samsung video kit provided to the students, of their project. From planning to execution their video is expected to showcase their project’s application to solve their concern they identified.
Schools have until February to work on their projects and submit their video in hopes of advancing in the contest.
The Mescalero Apache Tribe congratulates the Mescalero Apache School STEM students and Mr. Raynor for an outstanding job, we are very proud of you! Good Luck to our students in advancing!
