The mission of Malki Museum Inc. is to promote scholarship and cultural awareness, and to encourage preservation of Southern California Indian cultures (as well as other Indians having historical and cultural ties to Southern California) for future generations. the museum collects and displays art, artifacts, and historical materials of the Indians of the San Gorgonio Pass Area, and acts as a common meeting ground for Natives and non-Natives to learn about the past

“What Makes Malki Special”

“What Makes Malki Special”

Malki Museum is the oldest non-profit museum founded by Native Americans on a California Indian reservation, and has been the inspiration for several other Indian museums. It has a unique history and is committed to preserving the cultural traditions and history of the Cahuilla Indians and other southern California Indian tribes. Malki also founded an academic publishing press in 1965, which has printed many high quality books and materials on Native American culture, including the well-known Journal of California and Great Basin Anthropology.
