The Berkeley Roundhouse

Heyday’s Berkeley Roundhouse (formerly known as the California Indian Publishing Program) aims to celebrate Indian culture through our quarterly magazine, News from Native California, and books on Native life; hosting Indian events; and helping provide reading material to community members who would not otherwise have access to quality Indian publications.

Along with News from Native California, we’ve also published more than forty books devoted to California Indian culture and history, we’ve sponsored scores of events, we’ve launched two museum shows that traveled the state, and we’ve been helpful to the Indian community in a number of significant ways. The cultural treasure we’ve accumulated is stunning: filing cabinets full of letters and manuscripts, 3,000 or maybe 4,000 photographs, forty books and a hundred issues of News overflowing with artistic beauty, side-splitting humor, and painful truth.

Over the years we’ve helped preserve the cherished knowledge of an older generation, and we’ve done so with integrity and deep respect. At the same time, we have been useful to a younger generation struggling to find a place for Indian ways in the modern world. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished, excited by what we may do in the years ahead. It’s heartfelt, emotional, intelligent work, significant not only to the Indian community but everyone else as well.

It is no secret that the Roundhouse has been nourished by contributions from over 300 individuals and institutions who have donated gifts for operating expenses or specific projects. We are grateful beyond words to our subscribers, donors, and advertisers whose generosity and trust have kept our Californian Indian publishing vibrant and relevant through these years.
