Please join us for the celebratory 25th annual meeting of the California Indian Conference! , For the last quarter century the exchange of knowledge and perspectives has been the hallmark of the CIC, which was Inaugurated at UC Berkeley in 1985. The CIC is committed to the the recovery and advancement of California Indians and the promotion of excellence in collaborative cutting-edge scholarship in linguistics, archaeology, anthropology, and history. Much has changed for the better in the last quarter century in tribal politics, law, economics, scholarship, technology, and the preservation, retrieval and renewal of California Indian peoples’ culture. Tribal leaders, elders and youth, culture bearers, museum administrators, California Parks personnel, artists, environmentalists, educators from elementary grades to institutions of higher learning, independent scholars, archaeologists and others engaged in cultural resource management: all are encouraged to attend this landmark conference. We are communities in conversation, dedicated to the revival, preservation and protection of Native California.
We anticipate registration will begin after April 15. Please revisit our site for updates.
