On June 19, 1883 the United States by Executive Order established what is now the Soboba Reservation. We Celebrated our 125th Anniversary on July 26, 2008. For most of the last 125 years the Tribe and its members worked and made some progress in building the Soboba Community.
With gaming Soboba was able to build a casino and accelerate improvements in the community. We have just finished a renovation of our Casino. The Casino has 1,000 employees and is the major source of income for the tribe.
On April 14, 2008 a newly constructed Tribal Administration building was completed and is in operation. There are 350 employees who work for the Tribal programs and operations. The Tribe operates many programs and services for its members.
