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.
The Andreas Canyon is the ancestral home of the Paniktum Clan of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. Andreas was one of the leaders of that clan. This is the second largest native California Fan Palm oasis. These photos were taken along the Andreas Canyon Trail.
