The Old Woman Mountains (Mamápukaib) 


Supported in part by Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians, the NALC purchased the cultural landscape that is now the Old Woman Mountains Preserve, an area traditionally known as Mamápukaib. 


The 2,560-acre Preserve is located in the Ward Valley, 40 miles west of the Colorado River in the northern extension of the Old Woman Mountains. 

Mamápukaib, is a sacred landscape where the presence of the ancestors still remains.  Today, the Native American Land Conservancy manages this sacred landscape, to preserve it as an undisturbed area where cultural continuity and tribal identity can flourish.
