Dallin Maybee was raised on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation in Western New York, but he also has family on the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming. He is an accomplished dancer and has traveled extensively throughout the world as both a performer and choreographer.

His tours have taken him to locations such as: China, Mongolia, South Korea, Qatar, most of Europe, Mexico and South America, as well as throughout the United States. He tours regularly with the critically acclaimed American Indian Dance Theater and has served as a Dance Captain and performer.

He most recently completed a contemporary world premiere Opera hosted by Opera Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska. There he was Assistant Dance Director and worked with Hanay Geigomah, the director of American Indian Dance Theater and professor at UCLA, renowned Opera director Rhoda Levine, Pulitzer Prize winning poet/Librettist Yusef Komunyakka, and Grammy award winning composer, Anthony Davis.

He was also able to lecture at various universities and schools in the area as part of Opera Omaha’s outreach program. Other tours include traveling with the group Spirit: The Seventh Fire as well as serving as a consulting choreographer to the 2002 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies where he worked with a cast of 600 native dancers and singers.

He has a BA in Philosophy and has currently finished coursework in a Masters of Fine Arts program at UCLA where he studied federal Indian law. He worked as a summer law clerk for a securities litigation firm in Los Angeles and has been accepted and enrolled in the Sandra Day O’Conner School of Law at Arizona State University.

Dallin is grateful for the gifts, talents, and opportunities afforded him and hopes to offer those experiences for the education and enjoyment of others. “I have learned so many values and life lessons from the cultural structure of our song and dance; it has made me who I am today. It is up to God to decide in what way He chooses to bless our lives, it is up to us to decide in what ways we will use those blessings to serve others.”

He has won numerous awards for his work, including the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market "Best of Show" in 2007.
