In 1903 the Kupa were removed from their ancestral tribal home, the Village of Kupa also known as Warner's Hot Springs. The Kupa were forced onto the Pala Indian Reservation. This is known as the Cupeno Trail of Tears.
On June 1st, 2011 and February 1st, 2012 162 Kupa were once again removed from their tribe by the Pala Enrollment Committee. This is our Second Trail of Tears.
