New Landmark at Redlands Museum Identifies Serrano People in San Bernardino County

The San Bernardino County Museum in the Redlands, Apple Valley, and Yucaipa are in the ancestral territory of the Mariam, or Serrano, people, and a historic new entrance exhibit at the facility in the Redlands acknowledges as much.

The leaders of the San Manuel and Morongo tribes joined county officials on Wednesday, November 17, in what is considered the first permanent, physical native land acceptance in county history.

Serrano, presented in English and Spanish, is the latest step toward being “very truthful and accurate about our history and where we come from,” said County Museum director Melissa Russo. “It’s important for us to tell full history, part of which is acknowledging that the land we sit on is ancestral land.”

Rousseau commended the San Manuel and Morongo leadership for their guidance, advice and support in creating more transparent and progressive museum practices.

Rousseau said that with the collection of so many Serrano and other indigenous peoples, the county intends to honor and celebrate those natives.

“Their faith allows us to move forward in a way that is respectful and respectful of the tribe,” she said. “Museums are only a medium of information that we wish to present to the public.”

Morongo President Charles Martin said the two tribes had a land-related relationship going back generations.

“The land provided sustenance for the living; It provided for us and took care of us,” Martin said.
