Cuevas’ tribe operates the Pechanga Resort and Casino, the largest in California. By some estimates, it earns from $1 -2 billion annually and pays allotments to each tribal member of $300,000 or more a year.

The Cupeño are a Native American tribe of Southern California. Their name in their own language is Kuupangaxwichem (“people who slept here.”) They traditionally lived about 50 miles (80 km) inland and 50 miles (80 km) north of the modern day Mexico –United States border in the Peninsular Range of Southern California.
Fed by the Colorado River, it dried up sometime before 1700, following one of the repeated shifts in the river’s course. In 1905 a break in a levee created the much smaller Salton Sea in the same location. The Cahuilla lived from the land by using native plants.
Today, the Shakopee Mdewakanton are believed to be the richest tribe in American history as measured by individual personal wealth: Each adult, according to court records and confirmed by one tribal member, receives a monthly payment of around $84,000, or $1.08 million a year.
Average income varies by tribe and can range from $29,211 in the Osage tribe, to a mere $11,402 in the Tohono O’odham tribe. Over 20% of Native American reservation households make less than $5,000 annually while only 6% of the overall US population has an annual income of less than $5,000.
The Pechanga Resort and Casino has the largest casino floor in California totaling 188,000 sq ft.
