In 2012 CIMCC is co-hosting New Journeys in Collaboration with California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM) and the California Indian Culture Sovereignty Center. The all-day event will take place at the CSUSM McMahan House on Thursday, October 4th. The program is scheduled to begin at 8:30 am with a continental breakfast and a plenary session featuring a panel discussion on California Indians and technology. The morning session will be followed by a “Networking Lunch.” During the afternoon participants will be able to choose from 4 concurrent workshop sessions, the first from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm and the second from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm. There is a $30 fee to register.

New Journeys brings together tribal leaders and museum/cultural program representatives from throughout California for peer-to-peer mentoring and networking on community-identified topics vital to the success development of California tribal museums, cultural centers and cultural programming. This years featured topics are:

• Technology in Tribal Museum Collections

• Technology in Tribal Museum Education Programs

• Technology in Tribal Museum Exhibits

• Technology in Native Language Preservation

• Technology in Tribal Museum Outreach and Engagement


Tribal Museums and Cultural Centers in California can be effective forces in local and statewide social development. By providing information and instructional resources from a tribal perspective they can promote inter-cultural communication and help expand the ways in which California school children learn about the diverse histories and cultures of California Indians.
