Pala Veterans

The Pala Band of Mission Indians has a long history of military service. That tradition continues today and is recognized in many ways by the Tribe.

Defending The Homeland from Harris Craig on Vimeo.


From the American Revolution to World Wars I and II to present day Iraq and Afghanistan, Native Americans have a long tradition of participation in the United States military. Their courage, determination, and fighting spirit were recognized by American military leaders as early as the 18th century. DEFENDING THE HOMELAND: NATIVE AMERICANS IN THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES: is a documentary that brings their stories to life. California's Pala Band of Mission Indians and the Pauma Band of Luiseno Indians have an especially illustrious history of military service. DEFENDING THE HOMELAND showcases their emotional battles both overseas as warriors and here at home as veterans.
