CA Tribes To Convene Summit

 SANTA ROSA  -- Tribal leaders and personnel from across the state will be gathering at the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center in Santa Rosa next week for New Journeys in Collaboration, an annual networking event, which takes place on Friday, October 29th at 5250 Aero Drive, Santa Rosa, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Admission to the event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Representative Lynn Woolsey (D – 6th District) will deliver the opening address.

The day will begin with a panel discussion about cultural resources protection twenty years after the enactment of the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act. Concurrent workshops on tribal museum liaison skills, using museum collections for cultural revitalization, interpreting California Indian history and cultures from Native perspectives and other topics will occur after a networking lunch.

"Over the years New Journeys has been an important opportunity to bring together tribal leaders, museum professionals and institutional partners to discuss critical issues in the protection and revitalization of California tribal cultures," said Nicole Lim, Executive Director of the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center. "We are pleased to sponsor this event." With over 30 tribal museums and cultural centers being planned, developed and/or operating in California, the event has historically drawn up to 100 tribal representatives.

The California Indian Museum and Cultural Center's mission is to celebrate the history, cultures and contemporary lives of California Indians and honor their contributions to civilization.
