Link to Register

Roberto M. Dyea (Tsi YOO Nah in Native Laguna Pueblo) has come from a long way home from Barstow, California. In April 2019, he proudly earned his Bachelor's Degree in Studio Arts at the University of Redlands, becoming the first generation in his family to earn a BA degree. His dream is to become an art professor to advocate for Native American, First-Generation, and People of Color students. Ultimately, he will continue his journey to earn his Master of Fine Art in Community Arts degree at Maryland Institute College of Art and say... "I did it."

Sponsored by the UMBC Department of American Studies, Public Humanities, Maryland Traditions, Dresher Center for the Humanities, and the Masters of Fine Arts in Community Arts (MFACA) Program of Maryland Institute College of Art. Hosted by UMBC's AMST 345 Indigenous Heritage: Issues of Representation and Ownership and the MFACA Power Speaker Series.
