The Pechanga Cultural Center stands as a testament to the Pechanga Tribe's historical resiliency and unwavering dedication to honor our heritage.
It is the central mission of the Pechanga Culture Center to engender awareness and appreciation for the history and cultural traditions of our people, within the reservation community and beyond, through educational programs and exhibits.
The Cultural Center acts as repository for the Tribe's cultural heritage through the preservation of oral histories, archival materials and objects of cultural, historical and artistic significance to the Pechanga people.
A New HomeThe Pechanga Cultural Resources Center hosted a grand opening and ribbon cutting for their new home (kíicha). Located on the south end of the property. The facilities span three buildings and 12,000 square feet to include administrative offices, meeting rooms, a garage and maintenance area, and a curation facility.
This new campus provides state of the art facilities to aid in the collection and preservation of Luiseño cultural items. In the main building we have a rock wall built from granite gathered from Pechanga's own quarry.
The new campus is also equipped with sophisticated technology measures appropriate for its function, including a temperature- and humidity- controlled storage area and the latest security system for the curation facility, which houses an ever-widening collection of Luiseño baskets and other cultural artifacts.
Currently, our facility is not yet open to the public.
The Great Oak has come to embody the identity and principles of the Pechanga Tribe: strength, wisdom, longevity and determination.
