The Campo Indian Reservation is home to the Campo Band of Diegueno Mission Indians, also known as the Campo Kumeyaay Nation, a federally recognized tribe of Kumeyaay people in San Diego County, California.[3] The reservation was founded in 1893 and is 16,512 acres (66.82 km2) large.[2][1]

Government[edit]

The Campo Band is headquartered in Campo, California. They ratified their tribal constitution on July 13, 1975, which established a governing council consisting of all band members aged 18 or over. The democratically elected Executive Committee currently includes:

  • Chairperson: Ralph Goff
  • Vice Chairperson: Harry Paul Cuero Jr.
  • Treasurer: Marcus Cuero
  • Secretary: Annah Ceballos
  • Committee Member: Steven M. Cuero
  • Committee Member: Vanessa Parkhurst
  • Committee Member: Brian Connolly [6]

Services[edit]

In 1990, the Campo Band created the Campo Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA), which protects the environment and public health in the face of commercial development.[7] The tribe also has the Campo Indian Education Center and Campo Tribal Tribal Training Program.[5]

Topography[edit]

Campo Reservation Dam, ca. 1920

There are two areas included in the reservation, found on US Geological Survey feature ID 270242. The address for the tribal government is in the portion of the reservation north of Campo and Cameron Corners. This area is shown on the US Geological Survey Campo and Cameron Corners, California 7.5-minute quadrangles. While not a true square, this part of the reservation is roughly one mile across on each side. A point suitable for finding the reservation on a map is latitude/longitude.[8]

A second, larger area of the Campo Indian Reservation is located to the east in the area around the community of Live Oak Springs. This area is shown on the US Geological Survey Live Oak Springs and Tierra del Sol, California 7.5-minute quadrangles. This portion is rectangular: about six miles (10 km) in the north-south dimension and about 3.2 miles (5.1 km) in the east-west dimension.[9] Live Oak Springs is located at latitude/longitude 32°41′26″N 116°20′01″W / 32.69056°N 116.33361°W / 32.69056; -116.33361. The south extent of the area is about 0.4 miles (0.64 km) north of the Mexican border.[10]

Economic development[edit]

Muht Hei, Inc. is the tribe's corporation, which oversees Golden Acorn Casino, Campo Materials, and Kumeyaay Wind, a wind farm with 25 turbines.[11] The tribe owns and operates the Golden Acorn Casino, the Golden Grill Restaurant, the Del Oro Deli, and a travel center, all located in Campo.[12]

Internet[edit]

Portions of this remote area have wireless Ethernet Internet capability for tribe members. The service is provided through the Tribal Digital Village based on the Pala Indian Reservation, about 80 miles (130 km) north. This was reported in the San Diego Union Tribune, New York Times, and on the Community Television of Southern California program, California Connected. [13]
