I’m not the average college student. Before discovering IAIA, I was twenty years old waiting tables at Pizza Hut. I was barely making any money during that time. I came to a point where I was tired of going home and smelling like pizza. I wanted more. Music has always been my passion, and to be able to do music full time, I decided that I needed to further my education. After resigning from Pizza Hut, I went to speak with the director of the education department in my Pueblo. I had asked if there were any art schools near me where I could be able to get the education I wanted. That’s when I was told about the Institute of American Indian Arts.
I’m attending school here to gain my bachelor’s degree in Cinematic Arts and Technology. Media is a powerful tool and it’s also influential, especially in the time we are living.

If you want to dive into Native American cultural diversity you well get your fill and then some! A number of tribes are represented here and you could not believe the art that is made here as well as the art that is stored at IAIA. It is a growing school and many new buildings have been built since I attended along with new guidelines for different majors and minors. Overall, I highly recommend this school for those interested in a carer in Art as well as those Native high school graduates who do not know where they should go. Also, even if you like the school or not, I fully believe you will make lifelong friends, like I have.
The Institute of American Indian Arts is a prestigious art college in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It has so much to offer and has so many amazing opportunities. I am able to be surrounded by talented, one of a kind students and faculty. The atmosphere here is like no other. Being able to live in one of the best art towns in the country really makes the whole experience so much more valuable. There are artists of all types; from sculptors, to painters, to stunning jewelry makers. There is such a rich environment here. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
