Chapter History

Cahuilla Chapter is named for the indigenous people of the Coachella Valley. The word means master or powerful—not only physical, but mental, spiritual and deep inner strength. The chapter was organized on January 31, 1948, and has celebrated its 50th and 60th anniversaries and this year will mark its 65th anniversary. Begun with twenty-six members, the chapter has increased its scope of activities in parallel with the growth of its membership, which is now 186 with twenty-two associate members.
