The Cahuilla Band of Indians are Mountain Cahuilla (Qawishpa Cahuillangnah), one of the original peoples of Southern California. The Mountain Cahuilla lived in the high mountain valleys and canyons, running up from the Coachella Valley, San Gorgonio Pass, and San Jacinto Mountains region of Southern California.
Cahuilla history in stories and songs tells how the Cahuilla were given these lands as their homeland since the beginning of time by their Creator. The Cahuilla reservation of approximately 20,000 acres of Trust Land was established in 1875 and is located near Anza, California in what is now western Riverside County.
The Cahuilla Band of Indians Tribal Administration supports the multiple tribal departments in an effort to foster a team building working environment that supports the goals and objectives of the General Membership of the Cahuilla Band of Indians through the Tribal Council’s directives.
