The Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians and our ancestors have lived in the Pauma Valley and surrounding area since time immemorial. Our ancestors are buried here, we raise our children here, and this is where our future generations will continue to live and prosper.


Please be advised the Tribal Council has set forth the “Emergency Declaration for Reservation Closure.” This declaration encompasses three phases. On August 10, 2020, The Pauma Band of Mission Indians Council has voted to return to Phase 1, the lowest level of emergency.

Phase 1

•One metal barricade is at the checkpoint. It is not blocking traffic entering or leaving the reservation. It is drawing the attention of tribal members and visitors because we are receiving many calls asking why it is there.

• Police Officers and Security Officers are equipped with sanitary gloves and N95 masks. They will be worn with any public contact until further notice.
• Visitors that appear ill are being turned away and not allowed on the reservation.
• Tribal members and visitors are being advised of heightened security measures. They are also being informed of a possible reservation closure.
• Fire Chief Hawk and I will continue to stay in contact to evaluate our current situation.
• Police vehicles will be placed in various public areas to show Police presence.
• Non-essential vendors will not be allowed access to the reservation. They will be allowed to make deliveries to the Security Checkpoint and can be distributed from there.
