Morongo Reservation

The Morongo Indian Reservation spans more than 35,000 acres and overlooks the vistas of the Banning Pass. Resilient and resourceful, the Morongo tribe has had to overcome many adversities.

The Morongo Reservation was one of nine small reservations set aside by President Grant by executive order in 1865. In 1983, the path of Morongo’s future changed when tribal members started a modest bingo hall. From this building evolved one of the oldest and most successful Indian gaming facilities in California.

On both community outreach and social education fronts, Morongo has taken a leadership role. To benefit lower income Tribes, Morongo gives generously to AMIHA on an annual basis and to hundreds of local community groups. Today, the region’s governments, businesses, community leaders and groups regard Morongo as a friend and partner.
