The Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians is a federally recognized tribe of Luiseno people, headquartered in Riverside County, California. On June 18, 1883, the Soboba Reservation was established by the United States government in San Jacinto, California. The Luiseno Indians first encountered Europeans acting as missionaries, and the Luiseno allowed them to come through their community because they were literate. Writers passed through the San Jacinto valley where the Luiseno were settled and recorded much of their culture, and along with missionaries and soldiers were a part of the 1776 Juan Bautista de Anza expedition overland to and through Las Californias sponsored by Spanish monarchy.
