In the Pursuit of Preserving Native American Culture, History and Places
Jaime Geromino Vela (DSP 2010) is working hard to contribute to our understanding of America’s diverse places. Jaime credits his Apache heritage as playing a key role in his work to preserve Native American culture and history. He is currently pursuing his PhD in economic development at New Mexico State University and is exploring the financial considerations of protecting Native American places. Much of his research will be conducted on the Navajo reservation near Farmington, N. Mex.
Check out Jaime's profile on the DSP webpage! Read about his thoughts on the links between history and diversity and how the Diversity Scholarship Program helped to propel his education and career aspirations in preservation to the next level.
