The Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health and Native American LifeLines are pleased to welcome Gregg Deal to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 N. Wolfe Street (Sommer Hall) on Monday, November 5th at 12pm for a lecture in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe) is a graphic designer and artist who has served as Native Arts Artist-in-Residence at the Denver Art Museum and Artist-in-Residence at the University of California, Berkeley.
His activism exists in his art, as well as his participation in political movements. He has been heavily involved with the #changethename movement, appearing on an episode of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell as well as The Daily Show. He created a #changethename video on Vimeo to invite indigenous people to weigh in on the mascot issue in response to what he perceived as the mainstream media’s failure to include indigenous voices within the discussion.
