I live in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, and have often wondered who lived here before me, before white settlers and before the United States designated this land as its own. Your pre-contact tribal territories map was my first view of any information about who lived here -- the Costanoans. I was not prepare for such immense feelings of gratitude, and also grief that so little recognition and respect is given to the ancestors and people whose land this should be.
Thank you for offering such a map. I see now there is a wealth of other information available here, as well. I am delighted to become better acquainted with the Northern Califrnia Indian Development Couoncil.
I would like to know more about NCIDC. Not to receive services, but to discover if I might be of service, and if so, how I might serve.
I am a first year teacher, looking to expand my knowledge about the past of our home. I am hoping to present authentic perspectives of the history of Northern California. I’d love to connect with NCIDC to connect with any persons who would be willing to share stories and educate the youth in our community.
Hello. I am looking to outreach to any JOM programs in the State of California and to find all contacts to Tribal Education Agencies in California. Please send any information that may help me to email@example.com Pilamaye!
Thank you especially for the workshop on education advocacy for children. So many economically disadvantaged children need this support.
I'm looking into different programs for my participants.
Interested in working with your crew !!
Nice website! Michele Kiely put me on your path.
Can people order online? I don’t see the option to purchase?
Thank you for another wonderful Elder’s dinner. The food was perfect. The helpers were very kind and thoughtful. Everyone had a good time.
The dancing was great.
So happy to see the community is so strong.
See you next year.
I'm currently employed with NCIDC in Lake County, CA. This is an excellent employer to work for & I'm proud of the meaningful work we do as employees of this non profit organization. Thank you for the opportunity to be affiliated with such a purposeful group of hard working individuals.
