A substantial portion of the City of Palm Springs is located on reservation land of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. Section 14 is a square-mile parcel of the reservation that is one block from the heart of downtown Palm Springs -- extending from Indian Canyon Drive to Sunrise Way and from Ramon Road to Alejo Road.

This exhibition explores the life experiences of people who lived on this historic tract in the 1940s through the 1960s. Section 14 was the home of diverse cultures, races, ethnicities, and conflicting political and economic interests. Over time, it became a battle ground over matters of Tribal Sovereignty that changed, forever, the fabric of community life as it was known on Section 14.
