One of NCIDC's primary and specific purposes is the conservation and preservation of historic and archeological sites and resources.
In 1986 NCIDC purchased the Carson Block Building. The historically significant Carson Block Building was built in 1892, over 100 years ago, by William Carson (of Carson Mansion fame). It contained the Ingomar Theater, one of the most ornate theaters of its time on the West Coast
NCIDC, in conjunction with a large group of private and public financing entities, completed the restoration of the historic structure facade as well as sesmic retrofit for this beautiful building in 2016 and the building is now open and in operation.
The Northern California Indian Development Council, Inc. is a private nonprofit corporation that annually provides services to 14,000 to 15,000 clients statewide. NCIDC was established in 1976 to research, develop and administer social and economic development programs designed to meet the needs of Indian and Native American Communities; to provide support and technical assistance for the development of such programs, and the conservation and preservation of historic and archeological sites and resources.
The Northern California Indian Development Council works to meet the needs of American Indian communities by researching, developing and administering social and economic development programs. NCIDC will provide support and technical assistance for the development of such programs in addition to working to conserve and preserve historic and archeological sites and resources.
NCIDC will work to foster culturally appropriate communication and services needed by American Indian people to achieve self-determination in the economic, social service, cultural, educational, employment and related fields.
Our Native people and most importantly our youth are sacred and deserve to be proud of their culture, heritage, traditions, languages and ancestors. We want our people to succeed in all aspects of an integrated life, work, family, spirituality, social relations, physical well being and cultural pride. NCIDC will provide resources and services to assist American Indians to meet these goals.
