Water Under the Mojave Desert
Southern California needs water. A company based in the Mojave Desert, of all places, is keen to sell it some. The company, Cadiz, grows lemons, organic raisins and other crops and has an estimated 17 million to 34 million acre-feet of groundwater under its property, just down valley from the Mojave National Preserve.

Blessing the Monuments on May 27th
On May 27, the NALC gathered with members of the Cahuilla, Chemehuevi, Hualapai, Hopi, Paiute, and Serrano tribes to bless the Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow, and Castle Mountains National Monuments at the 29 Palms Inn located at the Oasis of Mara in Twenty Nine Palms. Together, we celebrated the ways the new Monuments offer added protection to our cultural sites and lands in the Mojave.
Thanks for Protecting the Monuments!
During the public comment period, over 1.4 million public comments were submitted to the Department of the Interior, the vast majority of which were in favor of maintaining the National Monuments.
News & Events
I’m so happy that Indian and non-Indian communities came together and formed the NALC to educate the people about who we are and where we come from.
