Dear CIBA Voting Member,
For over a quarter of a century, the California Indian Basketweavers’ Association (CIBA) has worked not only to increase the number of active California Indian basket weavers but to also increase awareness of California basketry and Native California cultural traditions among both Native and non-Native audiences. CIBA was created out of a deep concern shared by a small group of weavers who feared that traditional basketry knowledge was rapidly disappearing and that soon living “master weavers” would cease to exist. Today we works across the state of California to provide our members with access to programs and activities that build a larger community of California Indian Basket weavers. The back bone of our organization has and continues to be, our CIBA Board.
Each year, we invite you, our CIBA Voting Members to consider serving our statewide community of basketweavers by joining the CIBA Board of Directors. This year, our Board has three vacancies that need to be filled. If you feel you would be a strong candidate for our CIBA Board, please click on the following link to access the 2019 CIBA Board Nomidation Form.
