The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians celebrates its history and culture. In spring 2018, the Tribe will celebrate the groundbreaking of a new cultural center in downtown Palm Springs.
Inspiration for the cultural center's design includes Agua Caliente traditions such as basket weaving and pottery (ollas) and elements found in nature including desert landscapes, Andreas Canyon rock formations, the Andreas Canyon stream and the Washingtonia filifera palm trees - the only native palm tree to the California desert.
The Agua Caliente's partners on the project include: JCJ Architecture and the Penta Building Group.
"This new cultural center provides an incredible opportunity to share and celebrate our history, culture and traditions with this community and visitors from around the world."
