Overview

The California Indian Conference (CIC) began in 1985 at U.C. Berkeley. Ever since, the conference has moved across the state in October, generally alternating between northerly and southerly venues. Each conference chair, coordinator and/or committee brings their own unique perspective and approach to the conference.

CIC occurs in October, generally on the second or third Thursday through Sunday in October, although this can vary, depending on the needs and commitments of the local host or hosts and nearby California Indian communities.
