About

Spirit Mountain

The Ah-Mut Pipa Foundation was founded in 1996 by five individuals who were concerned about the preservation of Native American culture and art. The foundation is located on the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation and is registered as a California Public Benefit non-profit corporation, and considered as such to be exempt from taxes under California law. Also, the foundation is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit entity under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

Spirit Mountain

The mission of the Ah-Mut Pipa Foundation is to educate the Quechan community, the Tribes of California, and the general public, in order to increase understanding of Native American ethno-history, culture, and art.

 

 

Spirit Mountain

 The Foundation maintains facilities for research, publication, instruction, performance art, film, radio, and television production. It is the intention of the Foundation to promote the history and culture of Native California through the voices of the people themselves; sharing Native American methods of storytelling and research that will enrich the lives of all people.

 

 

Spirit Mountain

It is the hope of the Foundation to increase preservation of Tribal cultures and history, along with a stronger awareness of the surrounding environment’s role in traditional Quechan life ways. This becomes a process of regeneration that will benefit not only the Tribes of the lower Colorado River region, but all communities, both Native American and non-Native American, who wish to participate.
