Thursday, September 3, 2020
The ancestors of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation existed many centuries ago as a community of people…a Tribe living together, farming, hunting and fishing to survive.

Much has changed since that time.  Today the Sycuan Tribe governs its Reservation, owns and operates a Casino and a Golf Resort, and owns a number of other business ventures in the San Diego Region.   

One attribute that remains unchanged, however, is Sycuan's sense of community.  Sycuan is more than just a business.  Sycuan is a community of people working together toward a common goal.  Whether you work in our state-of-the-art  Casino, our beautiful Resort, or become a staff member in our Tribal Government division, you will be part of the Sycuan family.
