Cupeno Culture and History

As a complement to our Cupeno language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Cupeno tribe and their society. The emphasis of these pages is on Cupenos and other American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Cupeno history is interesting and important, but the Cupeno Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
