Pala Watch: From Where to From There


Pala Watch: From Where to From There: [] In May of 1903 the Cupeno were forced off their ancestral land and on to land at Pala along with the other villages except San Felipe. In September of 1903 the San Felipe who had their own separate court case to retain title to their land, lost their battle, and were also forced on to Pala.
