Tribal Economy

Our people are our future. The Pauma band of Luiseño Indians is committed to sustaining the health and welfare of our people through cultural enhancement and enrichment programs. A self-reliant tribe must be dependent on a culturally, socially, physically and economically strong community. As we look ahead, we work with our neighbors toward common goals.

In addition to our casino, we have a thriving agricultural program. Tribal lands of the Pauma Band consist of four parcels equaling approximately 5,800 acres. We began with five acres of Hass avocados and now have 60 acres of avocados, Valencia oranges, and lemons.

In addition, Tribal programs in health, housing, education, the fire department, and other areas provide for additional employment opportunities for some tribal members. Tribal members can register and log in to the Tribal Members Only section for a current list of available jobs with the Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians.

Casino Pauma

The Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians opened Casino Pauma in May 2001, providing employment to tribal members and the surrounding communities. Casino Pauma currently employs approximately 400 people. Casino revenues enhance the tribal government’s ability to meet the essential needs of our membership. Learn More
