Soboba Reservation

The Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians is one of the seven recognized bands of Luiseño Indians. Soboba is located at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains bordering the city of San Jacinto, California. Soboba’s Tribal members have a rich and diverse Tribal history as members come from both Cahuilla and Luiseno ancestry. Today’s members are descendents of those whom have lived on and occupied the land now known as Hemet and San Jacinto Valley. On June 19, 1883 an Executive Order set aside approximately 3,172 acres to establish the Soboba Indian Reservation for the permanent occupation and use of the Soboba people. The reservation today encompasses nearly 7,000 acres, 400 of which are devoted to residential use. The Soboba Band has a current enrollment of approximately 1200 tribal members who are governed by an elected tribal council that consists of 5 tribal members.
