Three Canoes: Honoring API Generations, Cultures & People
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kyle A. Reyes, Vice President of Student Affairs at Utah Valley University
Dr. Reyes draws on his Hawaiian, Filipino, and Japanese narratives to make current and relevant connections with how we show up for API communities today. As a graffiti artist from Canoga Park, California and now a cultural artist, Kyle will share how he arrived at his own artistic philosophy of advancing opportunities for API students, professionals, and communities. As a board member of Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education, Dr. Reyes is immersed in national conversations to create space for API stories and voices.
