I am a member of the Navajo Nation. As with many Native Americans in the Southwest, we were given Spanish surnames. My great-grandfather was Jose Ulibarri and was one of the signers of the Articles of Convention between the US and the Jicarilla Apaches. He married a Navajo named Louisa Small Canyon when the Navajos and Apaches were moved during the long-walk to Bosque Redondo near present day Ft. Sumner. They then traveled back to the present day Navajo Reservation where they settled in Canoncito. Presently, in Dulce New Mexico a large family of Jicarilla Ulibarri's reside. In addition to the Navajo and Jicarilla Ulibarri's there are groups in Santa Clara Pueblo and in Laguna. Also in the Las Vegas area are a group of Genzaros seeking federal recognition as Tiwa Pueblo Indians including a contingency of Ulibarri's. Many people in Northern New Mexico with the Ulibarri surname are Indian or mixed blood Genzaros.
