2017 Intertribal Gathering
36th ANNUAL INTERTRIBAL GATHERING AND ELDERS DINNER SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 11th 2017
For the past three decades the Northern California Indian Development Council, Inc. (NCIDC) has sponsored the Northwest Intertribal Gathering and Elders Dinner. This is the 36th year of this annual gathering and wants to invite you to take part in this regional community wide event.
In keeping with the spirit of Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and National American Indian Heritage Month, the Intertribal Gathering & Elders Dinner will be held on Saturday, November 11th at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds, 3750 Harris Street, Eureka, California. The gates will be open at 10:00 a.m. and festivities will go until 7:00 p.m.
The Gathering is a community event that provides us with an opportunity to honor all Elders and Veterans. Elders are served a free turkey dinner beginning at noon, followed by an Elders’ Gifting Ceremony at 3:00 pm.
The dinner is provided at no cost to all Elders over 55, regardless of ethnicity, with a nominal charge to other age groups. Also, throughout the day there will be American Indian arts and crafts available for sale, Native singers, with demonstration Tribal dances that includes: Brush, Tolowa Honoring, Aztec, Hoop dancers, a drum group and Pow Wow dance demonstrations. Last year over 4,500 people attended the Gathering and over 2,000 dinners were served with about half going free of charge to our honored Elders.
The gates open at 10:00 a.m. Admission to the grounds and dance demonstrations are free.
