Agua Caliente Cultural Museum


The Agua Caliente Cultural Museum has its initial roots as a bathhouse in the late nineteenth century and was being used as mid 1889. The clan of Cahuilla Indians rented the shower house land where an underground aquifer was situated in what is presently the core of Palm Springs. By 1910 it had come into decay and was under severe investigation by the Federal government which at the time was gathering the extra charges for the benefit of the clan. To exacerbate the situation the clan, which currently possessed the property, couldn't make fixes on account of authentic screwing up and formality. It was later reconstructed yet stayed under Federal investigation all through this period. Reconstructed again in 1930 the Agua Caliente Hot Spring turned into a magnet for Hollywood famous people and the City of Palm Springs grew up encompassing it. In the end the exercises of the clan got inconsistent with neighborhood organizations. By 1937 the Federal government assumed control over the activity of the Reservation and decreased its salary.

Today it's a flourishing exhibition hall and action focus which was formally committed in 1991 to the illumination of every one of us. As by and by understood the exhibition hall is a non-benefit substance also called a 501©(3) association committed in its own words "...to motivate individuals to find out about the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and other Native cultures....". Exercises today incorporate instructive projects, shows of different important assortments and inquire about and is continually endeavoring to grow. My first visit to the Museum came at the establishing festivity that year and to my advantage and pleasure to see the excited soul and aim to drastically extend the vision of the Band and to turn into an asset for the nearby Native societies as well as everyone also.

My second visit to the historical center came last March when I went to the five-day film celebration which happens in March of every year. Full length include movies, narratives and short movies were highlighted just as numerous neighborhood exercises, assorted introductions and even classes for a few. The movies are screened at the Camelot Theaters in downtown Palm Springs. I was favored to go to both the opening and shutting night gatherings and blend with an extraordinary crowd; producers, entertainers and different famous people sharing an enthusiasm for the advancement of information and comprehension of the Cahueilla Band.

My third, and latest, visit was last October when I went to a Museum supported, wonderful night under the stars in Andreas Canyon which included mixed drinks, supper, a bartering and Native diversion.

Exercises at the Museum proceed to extend and alongside its development is an arrangement to assemble a $65,000,000, 110,000 Square foot Museum in what is referred to local people as Section 14 of Palm Springs also called the Tahquitz region. Planned by popular modelers Jones and Jones the new Museum is relied upon to engage almost 150 thousand guests every year. Meanwhile all are welcome to visit the historical center as it is presently, appreciate the exercises and become familiar with the indigenous Native societies and the Cahuilla Band of Mission Indians.
