Tejon Indian Tribe celebrates Hard Rock casino partnership Emma Goss, Eyewitness News · June 11, 2019 at 11:11 pm The 987 members of the Tejon Indian Tribe are celebrating a homecoming, of sorts. After being “landless” for centuries, mainly due to an unratified treaty, tribe spokesperson Sandra Hernandez said. “Now with this opportunity to get back our land base, we’ll have that chance to commune,” she added. The Hard Rock casino and resort is the tribe’s first major land acquisition since they became a federally recognized tribe in 2012. “Without a land base or a central commune to go to, you are like needles in a haystack,” Hernandez said.
