The 2011 Annual California Indian Conference will be held Oct. 27-30 on the California State University, Chico campus. The theme of this year’s conference is “Sustaining the Circle of Knowledge.” There will be a wide diversity of presentations, workshops and performances, along with a number of special events, including a California Native basketry exhibit and master weavers demonstration at the Chico Museum, a Native fine art display at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology, an opportunity to tour the California State Indian Museum in Sacramento and a tour of the campus arboretum led by biologist Wes Dempsey.

“The Northeast Information Center, a long-time advocate for historic preservation, is honored to be coordinating the 26th annual California Indian Conference,” said Amy Huberland of the Northeast Information Center, part of the Department of Anthropology at CSU, Chico. “The conference planning committee, working with representatives from local Indian tribes, faculty, staff and students and the larger Chico community, has put together a one-of-a-kind event representing California Indian culture and contemporary issues.”
