city of Twentynine Palms, but the sibilant, shush-shush of palm fronds whispered old Serrano Indian lore of how the name Twentynine Palms came to be.
Indian women wanting to produce male children came here to this "Oasis of Fertility" on the advice of their medicine man. They set up camp at this "little springs much grass" and, as instructed, planted a Fan Palm for each male born. Twenty-nine trees were planted the first year. Quite a record.
The old Twentynine Palms Oasis, now called the Oasis of Mara, with water rising to the surface along a section of the Pinto Mountain fault, formed a desirable environment for three native tribes, Serrano, Chemehuevi and Cahuilla. These peoples were known to have lived here hundreds of years before Anglos followed their foot trails into the desert. Miners, homesteaders, cowboys and the stage line came later to the Oasis for the life-sustaining water.
