Dear Community Friends:

The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians’ Administrative Offices and the Tribal Health Clinic are located on the Chumash Reservation at 90 and 100 Via Juana Lane, respectively.

Along with the day-to-day tribal government operations, Tribal Administration provides programs to support the following endeavors:

  • Education, vocational, and professional development
  • Youth programs for creative arts and athletic achievement
  • Chumash language and cultural revitalization
  • Community philanthropic support
  • Community based environmental management
  • Financial literacy and long range planning
  • And many more programs in development

The administrative offices have also enabled the tribe to host various meetings and events. We continue to host a number of events, including the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon on Labor Day, Annual Veterans Dinner, cultural gatherings and ceremonies, holiday activities, and various educational and cultural workshops.

The Santa Ynez Tribal Health Clinic (SYTHC) continues to serve our tribal community, as well as the neighboring areas, to provide medical and dental care. This facility has expanded the dental care so that more patients are provided dental care services and education. For more information, please visit the SYTHC website at

The ability to help our tribal community is both satisfying and wonderful. The ability to also help the surrounding community is gratifying and demonstrates just how far the tribe has come.
