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 Cultural 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.
Located on the south end of the property, the facilities span three buildings and 12,000 square feet, which includes administrative offices, meeting rooms, a garage and maintenance area, and a curation facility. This campus provides state-of-the-art facilities to aid in the collection and preservation of Luiseño cultural items. Our curation facility is equipped with sophisticated technology measures appropriate for its function, including a temperature- and humidity- controlled storage area and the latest security system. Our repository and annex house our collections of baskets, pottery, lithics and historical items.
Currently, the Pechanga Cultural Center is open to researchers by appointment only.
