The California Native Daughters Club was founded in Berkeley, California in the late 1950s. Founders included Bertha Allen, the club's first president, and Ruth Lasartemay, who also served as president later. The club joined the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs in 1959. The club was actively involved in multiple local activities such as California Negro History Week.

The California Native Daughters Club Collection consists of correspondence, records, printed materials, founding documents, and artifacts related to club activities and member activities. The collection includes correspondence to and from the club and membership information for the women who were in the club and the club's relationship to outside organizations.
