The Intertribal Gathering & Elders Dinner is an annual Humboldt County event that celebrates Elders, and the culture and traditions of the original people of this area. The Northern California Indian Development Council is the originator and host of the gathering but it is the community coming together that makes it successful and possible. Celebrating all Elders is a core value of American Indian people. Through the gathering the entire community can experience and contribute to this worthwhile pursuit. It is a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to come together in celebration of our Elders, Veterans, Native cultures and the friendship of all peoples. We invite you to join us for a day of celebration that includes a traditionally cooked salmon and turkey dinner, veterans honoring ceremony, an Elder’s gifting ceremony and dance demonstrations. Visit the vendor area where Native American artisans display and sell their work.
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 is seeking private and public financing for the restoration of the historic structure, including restoration of the 837 seat Ingomar Theatre.
