The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is an economic force in the Coachella Valley and has been for more than 100 years.

“The Coachella Valley is an amazing place to call home,” Tribal Chairman Jeff L. Grubbe said. “Today, we purposefully invest in Coachella Valley’s future through government-to-government partnerships, charitable giving and active partnerships with businesses and non-profit organizations. We are interwoven in this community, and we have a deep commitment to the Valley’s continued vitality and success.”

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is a federally recognized American Indian tribe with more than 400 members. The Tribe stewards more than 31,500 acres of ancestral lands which include protected Bighorn sheep habitat and land throughout Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage as well as Riverside County. The Tribe is also one of Coachella Valley’s largest employers with more than 2,000 team members working for the tribal government and its business ventures. The Tribe’s history in the Coachella Valley goes back thousands of years. Near the turn of the 20th Century, the original hot springs bathhouse offered visitors access to the Tribe’s sacred healing waters. Today, the Tribe operates two destination resorts, a 36-hole golf course and maintains the world-renowned Tahquitz Canyon and the Indian Canyons. The Tribe is known for preserving its heritage while focusing on its future. In addition, the Tribe has a solid track record for being tireless stewards of the environment. “We are focused every day on maintaining our cultural heritage and celebrating our past,” Chairman Grubbe said. “We are also this area’s first environmentalists. We have long loved, respected and cared for our environment, and this is a quality that is passed from generation to generation for thousands of years.”
