Did the student mean drive their enemies from the plains?  Ebonics in this context does not make sense. This question needs to be clarified before it can adequately answered.  The Kiowa and some of the Apache did work together and a group called the Kiowa Apache, emerged from the interaction.  The Kiowa Apache are often also called the Plains Apaches. They also worked with the Comanche and Cheyenne.  There is a Lipan tribe of the Plains, also known as the Lipan Apache or the Eastern Apache. They were traditional enemies of the Commanche, but in the 19th century allied against the common enemy the settlers of european origins.

These tribes of the plains while in conflict before pressure from settlers drove them to cooperate against a common threat.  They cooperated in particular against settlers of Spain, Mexico, Texas (when independent) and the United States
