November is Native American Heritage Month, a time dedicated to recognizing and commemorating the invaluable contributions of Native Americans and their diverse cultures, histories, and traditions.
MSJC is proud its district is located between many Native Nations such as the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians, the Cahuilla Band of Indians and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians.
MSJC honors the first people and the land they allow us to share with them by acknowledging the Cahuilla and Payóm-kawichum people as the traditional land stewards and caretakers of much of the Inland Empire and the college district in particular. We invite you to join us in paying our respects to these People, their Ancestors, and their Elders past and present.
