California Indian Big Time & Social Gathering



At this time the Big Time 2020 Planning Committee has elected to voluntarily postpone the 14th Annual HSU California Indian Big Time and Social Gathering as a preventative measure in support of the health and wellness of our tribal and campus communities. This was not an easy decision to make but we felt it was important to protect our elders and those who may be most vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. The event was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020 and the committee will be exploring options to re-schedule in the Fall. Thank you for understanding and please feel free to contact the ITEPP Offices at (707) 826-3672 if you should any further questions.

Humboldt State University will host its  Annual California Big Time & Social Gathering in the West Gym. This public celebration of American Indian culture includes sharing of songs and dance from throughout California, an Indian Card Game Tournament, and cultural demonstrations.

Founded on the principles of enhancing and sustaining Native languages, cultures, and traditions, HSU’s Big Time has provided our Native communities with a space to honor the ways of life and the values of our ancestors.
