Welcome to Morongo
Set at the foot of the beautiful San Gorgonio and San Jacinto Mountains, the Morongo Indian Reservation spans more than 35,000 acres and overlooks the vistas of the Banning Pass. Resilient and resourceful, the Morongo tribe has had to overcome many adversities.
“Supporting local youth by creating new opportunities for learning and recreation is very important to our Tribe,” said Morongo Tribal Chairman Charles Martin. “The Banning Pass Little League provides local kids with a safe and healthy environment to learn the great game of baseball and to develop positive qualities, like sportsmanship, teamwork and integrity as they build friendships that will last a lifetime.”
Banning Pass Little League President Johnny Sigala thanked Morongo for the donation which will help the expected 450 local youth who will participate in the league this year by providing new and needed gear and field maintenance equipment.
“We deeply appreciate this generous donation from the Morongo Band of Mission Indians which will help hundreds of children in the Banning area, now and in the years to come,” Sigala said. “Morongo has truly made an essential investment in the future of this league, and we can’t thank the Tribe enough for its efforts to make a difference in the lives of so many young players across the community.” Morongo tribal leaders remain committed to improving the wellbeing of communities across the Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Over the past decade, Morongo has given over $10 million to support local and regional nonprofit organizations that help seniors, families, veterans, youth and those in need.

California Rep. James Ramos is hosting this roundtable at California Indian Nations College in Palm Desert. The tribal college is working to gain federal accreditation and become one of the more than 30 such tribal higher education institutions in the US. California, which has a high Native American population, does not currently have a tribal college.
