Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit
Idyllwild Arts hosted the 2019 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit, bringing Southwestern Native American tribes together to focus on climate strategies and solutions to advance tribal resilience efforts throughout the Southwest and North America.

Idyllwild Arts is built on the homeland of the Mountain Cahuilla Indians, a place referred to as Taqwish Heki in the Cahuilla language, an area that once supported many Cahuilla villages.

Today Idyllwild, California is still frequented by many Cahuilla, for whom it remains a special place to gather indigenous foods and medicines.

The hoop of the people all united as one
The long-standing commitment of Idyllwild Arts to engage with Native Americans is in part expressed through the Idyllwild Arts' Native American Scholarship Program. It welcomes Native teenagers to our outstanding residential high school, Idyllwild Arts Academy, and Native adults and children to a famous summer program for the arts.
