"Intertwining the stories of my cultural path with my Two Spirit identity, I work to evoke an emotion that sparks dialogue regarding ideologies that are too often silenced," Harris writes in a statement in which she describes herself as an "Indigenous Cultural Artist." "My efforts oppose the prolonged issue of Indigenous Invisibility," Harris adds. "Allowing my stories to manifest through writing, speaking, performance, and visual art, I can expand the audience of my message, educating and creating change within my communities." Harris is among thousands of candidates under consideration for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. In May, the nominees will be narrowed down to a group of 161 finalists and up to 20 will be named Scholars in Career and Technical Education, which is the category for which Harris has been named. Winning scholars will then be invited to Washington, D.C., in June to participate in various activities.
