The EDA Office has seen grease dumped around several Tribal buildings where vendors are allowed.
This is an ongoing issue we’re trying to stop from happening. It’s bad for business and our community’s health.
Continued grease dumping will result in a “no frybread vending” restriction in those areas.
We are asking for a commitment from our young men and adult men who would like to learn Quechan Songs and Quechan Language.
Our Quechan language and songs are dying. It is important to keep our traditions alive.
We meet every Wednesday at 6:00pm to 8pm at the Turquoise Community Center.
Our goal is to to gain a deeper understanding of the role of music within the Quechan culture and to learn and teach pronunciation of the Quechan language.
Our traditional songs play an integral role in the life of the Quechan culture.
The emphasis is to keep our Quechan way of life - Ah Mut Pi Pah Foundation.
