We are honored to host our event among the people now known as Luiseño Indians whom have inhabited the Temecula Valley for thousands of years. They call themselves Payómkawichum (the People of the West), and are made up of seven bands: Pechanga, Pauma, Pala, Rincon, San Luis Rey, La Jolla, and Soboba. The Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians has called the Temecula Valley home for more than 10,000 years. Attendees will have the pleasure to meet the Pechanga Elders and learn about their local Silver Feathers – Elders’ Council and the significant role they continue to hold within their tribal community.
