Indian Canyons, a Palm Springs Oasis

The Indian Canyons are a group of palm oases on the tribal lands of the Agua Caliente Band of Indians in Palm Springs, Calif. The canyons are home to wildlife, beautiful desert vegetation, scenic mountains and most importantly to the ancestors of the Agua Caliente, water in the form of mountain streams. They have been maintained in their natural state and are now an oasis for residents of and visitors to Palm Springs.
