Exhibit at Smithsonian Notes Agua Calientes' Perseverance in Section 14

By Keith Kohn ––

“Leaders of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians were in Washington this week at the official opening of a Smithsonian Institution exhibit about life in Section 14, an area defined by abuse and discrimination of tribal members in the mid-1900s that is now part of the Palm Springs core.

Tribal Chairman Jeff Grubbe and other leaders took part in the ceremony Wednesday introducing ‘Section 14: The Other Palm Springs, California.’ The exhibit was developed at the Palm Springs tribe's cultural museum. Section 14 is a square-mile tract that extends from Ramon Road north to Alejo Road and Indian Canyon Drive to Sunrise Way. 

The exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian describes life in Section 14 and how Palm Springs leaders kept it isolated and unable to access basic city services.
