An enrolled Tribal member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Marcelino is comprehensively familiar with opportunities and issues associated with economic development related activities. He has served as the Pascua Yaqui Tribe jurisdictional representative at the Pima Association of Governments Environmental Planning Advisory Committee for over seven years. Within the Tribe, he was involved in researching CAP/TAMA history, renewable energies, and water conservation technologies. He has received specific training from the Bureau of Reclamation, National Renewable Energy Lab, and Economic Development Institute. Moreover, with Tribal support, he is actively pursuing certification as an economic developer as accredited by the International Economic Development Council. Fittingly, he is passionate in achieving local self-sufficiency and regional balance linking resource management, emerging technologies, and regional economic development. As an artist, his goal is to highlight lesser-known facets of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and their symbiotic link to the Sonoran desert.
