This Spring, Maiyah was featured on PBS’ Speak Out Poetry series where 9 young people of color from New Mexico share 11 poems about social justice, culture, and identity. Maiyah’s poem was entitled, Shower Singer.
Maiyah was also invited as a guest speaker at the New Mexico State Legislature in honor of New Mexico’s Native American Day. The forum was focused on honoring and Protecting the Earth for Future Generations and was lead by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. Pueblo Governors and Leaders Proclaim Native American Day Every day.
