The 2020 Gathering Has Been Cancelled

It is the vision of CIBA to preserve, promote and perpetuate California Indian basketweaving traditions while providing a healthy physical, social, spiritual and economic environment for basketweavers. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is presenting our California tribal communities with an unprecedented situation as the very core our cultural traditions, including basketweaving are taught in a manner that does not align with social distancing requirements. It is due to our commitment to the health and well-being of our members, and especially our cherished elders, that we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Gathering.

We look forward to bringing together our basketweaving community together in the future as soon as it is deemed safe to do so!
