Dallin Maybee 2011
Dallin Maybee, Northern Arapaho/Seneca, was raised on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation in western New York, but he also has family on the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming. He is an accomplished dancer and has traveled extensively throughout the world, as both a performer and choreographer. With his highly acclaimed beaded ledger books, Maybee presents a series of thought-provoking and visually compelling children’s books and ledger drawings. Each piece has an underlying message and conveys something unique about the modern reclamation of Native history. Maybee has a BA in Philosophy and a Masters of Fine Arts from the UCLA where he also studied federal Indian law. He is enrolled in the Sandra Day O’Conner School of Law at Arizona State University.
