Core Exhibitions

Core exhibitions at the Museum encompass aspects of Agua Caliente and Cahuilla history and culture. This is where one can learn about Tribal economics, language, religion and belief systems, and kinship – and view a timeline that highlights key events in the history of the Tribe. It is the core of knowledge of the culture and history of the Tribe, and a starting point for all understanding.
