Agua Caliente Unveils new book by Lowell John Bean

For more info visit: aguacaliente-nsn.gov

From the early research days of the 1980s to the span of nearly two decades, From Time Immemorial, The Traditional Ways and History of the Members of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation is now available to the public. An expansive look into the history of both the Agua Caliente Tribe and the city of Palm Springs from the preeminent scholar on the Cahuilla Indians.

This extensive look into the traditional ways and history of the Agua Caliente people is presented by the lifelong research Author Lowell John Bean.

From Time Immemorial, The Traditional Ways and History of the Members of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, is available now with a cover price of $45 at Agua Caliente Casinos, Indian Canyons Golf Resort and the Indian Canyons Trading Post.

About The Author
Lowell J. Bean, Ph.D., is an anthropologist, scholar, and ethnohistorian who has studied the culture of the Cahuilla Indians of the Palm Springs region, as well as other tribes throughout California and Arizona, for more than 50 years. Bean grew up in the small farming town of St. James, Minnesota. After serving as a Marine in the Korean War, he enrolled as a student of anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles. His fieldwork led him to the Morongo Indian Reservation, where he was first introduced to the world of the Cahuilla. Bean's observations and research during that time inspired his life's work. He went on to teach at California State University Hayward, where he remains professor emeritus of anthropology, and also helped establish the Malki Museum, alongside tribal leaders Jane Penn and Katherine Saubel. He has written several books and papers on the Cahuilla Indians and has received thanks and recognition from many in the Native community, including former Agua Caliente Tribal Chairman Richard M. Milanovich, for his seminal role in the study and sharing of Cahuilla culture and history.

Please review the list below and see if there are any groups who should be a part of this effort who are not. Feel free to forward this email to them, or to connect with me so that I can reach out. Thank you again for your support on this important effort! TEXT OF LETTER June XX, 2017 Honorable Ryan Zinke Secretary of the Interior U.S. Department of the Interior 1849 C Street Washington, D.C. 20240 Re: California Tribes, Hunters, Businesses, Recreationalists, and National Park Visitors Oppose Cadiz Water Project Dear Secretary Zinke, On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members across the country, we write to express our opposition to the Cadiz Water Project, proposed by Cadiz Inc. in California’s Mojave Desert. Our organizations represent diverse constituencies of California desert’s national parks and public lands, including campers and hikers, hunters, tribal members, rockhounds, gateway community businesses, and wildlife enthusiasts. We are united in our opposition to the Cadiz Water Project that threatens our way of life and our ability to enjoy our public lands. The Cadiz Water Project proposes to pump 16 billion gallons of water each year for 50 years from a rural Mojave Desert aquifer for sale to urban, coastal markets. Cadiz Inc. does not have approval from the Metropolitan Water District, which manages the aqueduct required for the project and previously rejected this project due to environmental harm. Additionally, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service, two of the most respected science-focused agencies in the nation, have found Cadiz Inc.’s aquifer recharge rate to be grossly exaggerated. The USGS concluded that the aquifer’s recharge rate is nearly 10 times less than what Cadiz Inc. has estimated, and reaffirmed their analysis on May 5, 2017, writing “We are not aware of new information that would change our recharge estimates.” The National Park Service recently stated Cadiz Inc.’s recharge rates “are not reasonable and should not even be considered.” The Trump administration should accept the expert findings of its own agencies. Cadiz Inc. has asked the Trump administration to waive federal review of this project, but doing so would negatively impact the rural communities and stakeholders who use this landscape in many ways. The aquifer supports remote springs Native American tribes from the California desert identify as sacred. These springs are critical for wildlife such as bighorn sheep and support recreational activities including wildlife viewing and hunting. The affected landscape includes both the Mojave Trails National Monument and the Mojave National Preserve, the third largest national park site in the lower 48 states. Our national parks and public lands should be protected and left in a better condition for future generations. Cadiz Water Project proposes the opposite, and in doing so, undermines the multiple-use offerings of this region developed over decades of careful work by local stakeholders. We urge you to defend the California desert from the harmful Cadiz Water Project. Sincerely, SIGNERS: 1. Amargosa Conservancy 2. Amigos de los Rios 3.
