Your question isn't a simple one, and would require a great deal of time in
dictionaries. I suggest you look at this article:

Sapir, Edward. 1936. "Internal linguistic evidence suggestive of the
Northern origin of the Navaho". American Anthropologist (38): 224–235.

It's not Apache, but it might be useful and may help you formulate a
question that would be easier and less time-consuming to answer.
