The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians are of the Native American tribe known as "Serrano," a name given to us by the Spaniards which means "mountaineer." Long before the Spaniards and other European settlers arrived here, our ancestors roamed a territory that spanned the San Bernardino Mountains and valley, and adjoining desert lands. In our native language, we call ourselves "Yuhaviatam," or "people of the pines." From the day the Creator placed us on Mother Earth, we have lived here in harmony with all living things and the spirit world - our connection to the Great Mystery

The Great Seal of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is an ancient pattern of the Southern Arizona tribes. The pattern represents the MAZE, or house of "Se-eh-ha" (Elder Brother).
The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is composed of several small groups living in the area at the time the Agua Caliente Reservation was established. Recently, archaeological research has proven that Indians occupied the Tahquitz alluvial fan about 350 to 500 years ago. Distinct areas of living quarters and food preparation are apparent. This, and the area surrounding the nearby hot springs, was the home of the Kawasic Band.
When the Chickasaw Nation was re-established as a tribal government on March 4, 1856, in Tishomingo, Indian Territory, the Chickasaw people honored their last war chief, Tishomingo, by representing him on the Great Seal of the Chickasaw Nation. In addition, the figure represents the courage of the Chickasaw people.
