Fiscal Year: 
San Jacinto
Recipient Type: 
Native American/Native Hawaiian Museum Services

The Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians will upgrade and improve the care of the historical and archival collections of its Soboba Cultural Center and Research Library. Many of these items need re-housing and proper storage to ensure the long-term preservation of Soboba’s heritage of both Cahuilla and Luiseño culture. The museum will purchase a new collections management system and the project staff will sort, logistically reorganize, inventory, catalog, and digitize 4,500 objects and archival materials. The project will include relocating and re-housing the materials and making portions of these collections available for viewing by the public through an online catalog. The project is designed to make the collections more accessible to staff, the tribal community, and the general public to help provide cultural understanding and appreciation of the roles and contributions of the Soboba people to the Southern California region.
