Eureka, November 12, 2011: For many years the Northern California Indian Development Council, Inc. (NCIDC) has sponsored the Northwest Intertribal Gathering and Elders Dinner. This is the 30th year of this annual gathering and we want to invite you to take part in this regional community wide event.

In keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving and National American Indian Heritage Month, Intertribal Gathering & Elders Dinner will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds, 3750 Harris Street, Eureka, California.

The Gathering is a community event that provides us all with an opportunity to honor all Elders and Veterans. Elders are served a free turkey dinner with traditionally cooked salmon beginning at 12 noon followed by an Elders’ Gifting Ceremony at 3:00 pm.

The dinner, which includes roast turkey and open-pit baked salmon, is provided at no cost to all Elders over 55, regardless of ethnicity, with a nominal charge to other age groups. Throughout the day there will be American Indian arts and crafts available for sale, native singers, a drum group and dance demonstrations, which include: Brush, Tolowa Honoring, Aztec, Shake Head, and Hoop dancers. Last year over 4,500 people attended the Gathering and over 2,000 dinners were served.

The gates open at 10:00 a.m. Admission to the grounds is free.
