Congratulations or condolences we'll see which is more appropriate after
this next year.
New California Indian Education Association (CIEA) Officers:
André Cramblit is President (Karuk Tribe-Arcata, CA)
Jane Holzman is Secretary (Pala Tribe-Sacramento, CA)
Ruby Vargas is Treasurer (Wukchumni Tribe-Selma, CA)
Cindy LaMarr is Northern VP (Pit River/Paiute Tribe-Sacramento, CA)
Clyde Hodge is Central VP (Creek-Stockton, CA)
Randy Sevedge is Southern VP (Choctaw Tribe-Santa Maria, CA)
The new officers dont take over until January 1, 2000.
CIEA needs to become an umbrella organization that gives voice to
interests in Johnson O'Malley, Title IX, Tribal Education Departments,
Higher Ed, Language, Indian Ed Centers, MSTAR/MESA, and whatever other
components are out there.
I would like to see accomplished in the first year:
1) A plan be developed to give CIEA a focus for the next 5 years.
2) Membership increased to over 500 (call Ruby at 209/896-2936 for a
membership application dues are still only $10.00).
3) CIEA become a co-sponsor of the Statewide Indian Education Conference.
4) Newsletter be published at least once a quarter with articles from
each one of the educational components listed above.
5) An annual legislative agenda developed so that we are resources to our
political leaders and also an effective spokes group for quality American
Those are some preliminary ideas-anyone care to add more or volunteer to
Thanks to Vivian Hailstone & Laura Lee George who both nominated
me. You can save this email to see what was accomplished off this
list by next year at this time.
