For thousands of years, Cahuilla people have been singing their Bird Songs. Today, Cahuilla people and other Tribes throughout Southern California celebrate their heritage and culture by sharing the Bird Songs that tell the stories of the Cahuilla migration and the lessons learned along the way. These sacred songs have been passed down from generation to generation. Join us at Singing the Birds. Register today! aguacaliente.org (link in bio) |

Agua Caliente Cultural Museum (Building the new downtown cultural plaza!)
The exhibition "Section 14: The Other Palm Springs, California"—closing at the museum on the National Mall February 17—exposes a little known incident in the history of tribal and civil rights.

A one-square-mile tract in downtown Palm Springs, Section 14 forms the heart of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. Until the 1940s, Section 14 was a neighborhood of Agua Caliente families and of Mexican American and African American families who leased inexpensive building plots from the tribe. With the development of Palm Springs, however, the land became a battleground over issues of tribal sovereignty, zoning, economics, and race, and a 20th-century example of the conflict between Western expansion and Indigenous rights.

Created by Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and organized by the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, "Section 14" will go on view at the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum later this year.

"Tribes have lost millions of acres of land through broken treaties, by force, and in exchange for federal services. Rarely has it been restored." The Wiyot Tribe and City of Eureka have chosen to take a different path.

If you're near Washington, D.C., and want to learn more, two exhibitions at the museum on the National Mall examine tribal land issues and other treaty rights: "Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations," on view until 2021; and "Section 14: The Other Palm Springs, California," produced by the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, on view here until January, then reopening at the cultural museum in Palm Springs.
