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. For now, he is excited to learn concepts of community art as he teaches Manga and character designs at the Refugee Youth Project, here in Baltimore. 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 American Studies, Public Humanities, Maryland Traditions, and the Dresher Center for the Humanities.
