The PYT-UA Microcampus's Sea Ania "Flower World" screen partition symbolizes the beautiful outside world and the start of life for the Pascua Yaqui people, signifying sacrifice and access to other realms as an integral aspect of their current existence. Alongside this cultural and spiritual significance, the UA-Tribal Microcampus Model addresses the need for higher education and sustainable development opportunities among Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders, fostering collaboration with tribes. Together, these elements celebrate the rich heritage and provide pathways for growth and prosperity within the Pascua Yaqui community.
You brought together so many impressive minds who gave us fresh ideas, inspiration, and hope. I think it is so important for working professionals to stay in touch with new scholarship and thinking so we can integrate it into our work with the community.
