The Cahuilla Indian Reservation is a federally recognized tribe that was established on December 27, 1875 by executive order. The entire reservation is held in trust by the United States Government and consists of 18,884.26 acres; it is divided into land assignments and held in common for the membership. Cahuilla is 325 members strong with approximately 60 homes on the Reservation.

The Cahuilla Indian Reservation is located in a rural Southern California area of Riverside County, adjacent to the township of Anza, CA. The Reservation is approximately 25 miles east of Temecula and 35 miles west of Coachella Valley. The Reservation is comprised of rolling hills, large boulders, and pasture lands of redshank, manzanita, and sagebrush; a true chaparral ecosystem. The Cahuilla Reservation has a major surface water system known as the Cahuilla Creek which runs from the southeastern section to the northwestern section. It is also known as “Paui” (people of the hot springs).

The La Jolla Indian Reservation was est. in 1875, over 130 years ago by executive order of the president of the United States Ulysses S. Grant. However,  they have existed here for thousands of years. This reservation consists of 9,998 acres of Federal Land and around 702 enrolled Tribal Members. Much of the land is undisturbed and is located at the foothills of Palomar Mountain. A semi-wilderness Reservation with the San Luis Rey River running through it is also fed by natural springs.

The La Jolla Indian Reservation is a federal reservation of Luiseño Indians in Northern San Diego County, near the community of Valley Center. Their Tribal government consists of a five member Tribal Council, with a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, and a Council Member.

The Morongo Indian Reservation spans more than 35,000 acres and overlooks the vistas of the Banning Pass. Resilient and resourceful, the Morongo tribe has had to overcome many adversities.

The Morongo Reservation was one of nine small reservations set aside by President Grant by executive order in 1865. In 1983, the path of Morongo’s future changed when tribal members started a modest bingo hall. From this building evolved one of the oldest and most successful Indian gaming facilities in California.

On both community outreach and social education fronts, Morongo has taken a leadership role. To benefit lower income Tribes, Morongo gives generously to AMIHA on an annual basis and to hundreds of local community groups. Today, the region’s governments, businesses, community leaders and groups regard Morongo as a friend and partner.

The Santa Rosa Indian Reservation is located in Riverside County, between Palm Springs and Anza, and occupies 11,021 acres of land with elevations ranging from 4,200’ to 8,700’ at Toro Peak.

The Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians are the direct descendants of three Cahuilla clans that occupied the areas of Toro Peak, Coyote Canyon/Anza Borrego, Garner Valley, Pinion and present day Santa Rosa Reservation.  During winter months the clans would occupy the lower desert canyons.  During the harsh summer months, the clans would move to the cooler elevations

The Santa Rosa Reservation was established on February 2, 1907, under authority of the Act of 1891 as amended. The Act of April 17, 1937, authorized the Secretary of Interior to purchase 640 acres to be held in trust for the Tribe. All reservation land is tribally owned and un-allotted, though some of the land is under assignment and has been passed from generation to generation. Currently there are approximately 70 people living on the reservation with a total of 110 tribal members.   A Tribal Council governs with members elected to two-year terms.

The Santa Ynez Reservation is located in Santa Barbara County and was established on December 27, 1901 under authority of the act of January 12, 1891. The residents of the Santa Ynez Reservation are members of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians is the only federally-recognized Chumash tribe in the nation.

For many years, few tribal members lived on the Reservation. It was difficult to live a modern existence on the Reservation without running water or electricity. We began a housing program in 1979 and more tribal members were able to move on to the Reservation.

Thanks to the revenue generated from the tribe’s Chumash Casino Resort, the tribal members are on the path to economic self-sufficiency. Some continue to live on the Reservation and others live in surrounding towns. Today there are 249 residents on the Santa Ynez Reservation and 97 homes.

In the Santa Ynez Valley area, tourism and agriculture continue to be the primary industries. The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians significantly contributes to the tourism industry, bringing in some 6,000 patrons per day to the tribe’s Chumash Casino Resort. Those visitors also bring patronage to the various businesses in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians is one of the seven recognized bands of Luiseño Indians. Soboba is located at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains bordering the city of San Jacinto, California. Soboba’s Tribal members have a rich and diverse Tribal history as members come from both Cahuilla and Luiseno ancestry. Today’s members are descendents of those whom have lived on and occupied the land now known as Hemet and San Jacinto Valley. On June 19, 1883 an Executive Order set aside approximately 3,172 acres to establish the Soboba Indian Reservation for the permanent occupation and use of the Soboba people. The reservation today encompasses nearly 7,000 acres, 400 of which are devoted to residential use. The Soboba Band has a current enrollment of approximately 1200 tribal members who are governed by an elected tribal council that consists of 5 tribal members.

The Torres-Martinez Reservation was established by Executive Order on May 15, 1876 and is named after the early Toro Indian Village and the Martinez Indian Agency and is located in the lower Coachella Valley.  The reservation encompasses a total area of 24,024 acres, half of which is submerged below the Salton Sea.  .

Ancestors of current Torres-Martinez Tribal members, like all the Coachella Valley Indian Tribes, are Cahuilla Indians. The Torres-Martinez distinguished themselves with their ability to develop water supplies with hand-dug, walk-in wells which helped them accommodate the strict requirements of desert living. These water pits were constructed with terraced sides and were sometimes 100 feet across, able to sustain the Tribe when no other surface water could be found.

The Torres-Martinez Historical District consists of three buildings. Believed to be the oldest standing Indian Agency buildings in California, they were placed on the National Registry of Historical Places in 1973.
