The concept of ethnic galleries is, they say, unique
to the Imperial
County Museum. It was part of the concept when they moved from
the old building in the County Fairground to the new building on Imperial Valley College property right
across from the campus. The museum opened Oct. 2, 1991. The Columbus
Day opening kept the Cocopah Indians from joining and they've not
come in to this day.
To preserve and celebrate the history of our fathers and to assure that the struggles and obstacles that they overcame as pioneers in this new country are not forgotten.

Park and Museum as well as the following pages to see the Imperial Valley's
tribute to the their East Indian members.
