Indian Village is an unincorporated community in Furnace Creek, Death Valley of Inyo County, California.[1]

Indian Village lies at an elevation of 197 feet (60 m) below sea level. Indian Village is located in the Death Valley Indian Community reservation of the federally recognized tribe of Death Valley Timbisha Shoshone Band of California, within Death Valley National Park.[1] Approximately 50 members of the Native American Timbisha Shoshone Tribe live in Indian Village.

After unsuccessful efforts to remove the band to nearby reservations, National Park Service officials entered into an agreement with Timbisha Shoshone tribal leaders to allow the Civilian Conservation Corps to construct an Indian village for tribal members near park headquarters at Furnace Creek in 1938.
