Gilbert "Dino" Garcia (b. 1969) learned to carve tufa molds, and cast sterling silver jewelry from his grandfather Leo Coriz (who learned the art from the legendary Charles Loloma).

After spending his teen years in an Indian boarding school in Oklahoma, Dino moved to California and worked in the greater Los Angeles area for defense contractors for a few years.

Returning to Santo Domingo Pueblo around 2000, he began working as a full-time silversmith. Dino is one of the few silversmiths working at Santo Domingo Pueblo.
