Their traditional homeland spanned roughly from Laguna Beach to San Onofre in Southern California.
There are some key health issues that the tribe is facing. Such as: an outbreak of diabetes, hypertension, and the problem of obesity.
The Juaneno tribe is not federally recognized yet by the United States government, so they are continuously faced with the process of proving their ancestry back to before California was even declared a state.
The tribe does not receive funds from the government, so there is a scholarship fund set up through donations from members and persons wishing to contribute. If you would like to donate to the Juaneno Indian Scholarship Fund, please contact Fran Yorba at 949.488.3484.
