The Apaches are the main antagonists of Disney's 1963 live-action film Savage Sam. They are a tribe of unscrupulous Indians who have in their number one slightly wiser Comanche.

Role in the film

Travis, Arliss, and Lisbeth are taken captive by Apaches stealing horses. Travis is left behind when the Apaches are chased by a cavalry patrol and is found by Savage Sam (thanks to Sam's keen sense of smell).

Beck gathers up a search party including Bud Searcy and neighbor, Wiley Crup. Led by Savage Sam, who tracks the Apaches despite an injured paw and a hailstorm, the search party finds and rescues Arliss and Lisbeth.
