Shis-Inday ("People of the Mountain Forests") or Mashgalénde / Mashgalé-neí / Mashgalé-õde ("People close to the mountains" or "Mescalero Apache People") - beter known as Mescaleros - were organized in bands and local groups. But there is a long-standing debate on how many Mescalero bands there were.
In Krober's CULTURAL AND NATURAL AREAS OF NATIVE NORTH AMERICA p. 36 footnote 12, the band division of the Shis-Inday is listed as follows (Krober quotes Gifford):
Kahoane, the most westerly group, apparently east of the Rio Grande;
Ni'ahane, central, presumably about the Capitan Mountains and the Sierra Blanca;
Huska'ane, or "plains people," to the east, in the Pecos Valley;
Tuetenene, south of the Rio Grande below the mouth of the Pecos namely, in Coahuila, and said to be "half Lipan";
Zitachisene, of Azfil, toward Chihuahua City, perhaps belonging rather with Chiricahua than with Mescalero.
Here are the Mescalero divisions form Krober's source: E. W. Gifford, ANTHROPOLOGICAL RECORDS 4:1: CULTURE ELEMENT DISTRIBUTIONS: XII APACHE-PUEBLO, Berkeley 1940, p. 166:
Three bands: (1) Kahoane. Lived in San Andres, Organ, and Oscura mts. S to El Paso. Ranged N to Santa Fe. (2) Nia'ahane. Lived in Sacramento mts., Guadalupe mts., Sierra Blanca, and Capitan mts. (3) Huskaane. Lived in Pecos V. from Ft. Sumner S to confluence of Pecos and Rio Grande. Huskaane means "plains people."
Kahoane means "people of ridge descending abruptly to river" (viz., Rio Grande at S end of ridge). Ni'ahane means "people of Nikachaa," i.e., of "terraced mts." Comanche (Indassene, from indas, enemy) were principal enemies and lived to E of Huskaane. Navaho, Kiowa, and Kiowa-Apache were also enemies and raided Me, especially Huskaane, for horses. Jicarilla were friendly and were callea Chiyahene (living close to house people). Of the 3 Me bands, Kahoane, the western, had fewest horses; Huskaane, the eastern, had most. Tunsane, "big water people,"Me name for Lipan. Shaiahane, western people, is general term applied by Me to Warm Springs and Huachuca Apache, whom they now call Chiricahua also. Huskaane farmed around Hope and Lincoln. Kahoane did the least farming. Ni'ahane principal farming centers on Rio Penasco, at La Luz, and near Glencoe. Guadalupe mts., in S part of Ni'ahane range, had many springs, better stocked with game than Sierra Blanca in N. Elk, white-tailed deer, black-tailed deer in Ni'ahane territory. Mesquite grew on SE and W slopes of mts. No jaguars. All 3 Mescalero bands hunted buffalo, which came to base of Capitan mts. Buffalo around Ft. Sumner agency, but people did not like flat country and difficulty of getting wood, so transferred to present reservation in mts. A fourth band called Tuetenene lived in arid country S of Me. Tuete means "no water." The people largely depended on rain-water holes in arroyos and occasional springs. They were said to be half Mescalero, half Lipan in blood. Tunsane, Lipan, lived on both sides of Rio Grande downstream from Tuetenane. Zitachisene, an Apache group near Chihuahua City, were their neighbors to S and SW.
