Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, Southern California

Celebrating Culture

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians celebrates its history and culture in many ways including community celebrations such as Dinner in the Canyons and Kewet: Native American Learning Day.

Expanding on that mindset, the Tribe will open in the future the new Agua Caliente Culture Plaza in downtown Palm Springs. The new development features the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, The Spa at Séc-he, Oasis Trail and Gathering Plaza.

Inspiration for the Cultural Plaza'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 project partners include: JCJ Architecture and the Penta Building Group. For more information:
