The Adventure Continues… Indian History

Back in December 2016, I learned a little bit about the Cahuilla people and their history when I visited the Riverside Metropolitan Museum. But there is so much more than could possibly be learned in one short afternoon; that much is clear from seeing Huell’s visit to Palm Springs and to the amazing Palm Canyon oasis in this episode of Visiting, first aired in 1999.

Palm Springs original inhabitants were the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians who are still very active in the community. Huell starts the tour at The Spa Hotel & Casino which was the original site of an oasis that was a prominent part of their culture for hundreds of years. The water that boils up from the ground is now used in a modern spa. Then it’s up Palm Canyon to visit the fifteen mile long oasis which is one of the most beautiful places in California and another special place filled with Indian history.
