The Dream Warriors Scholarship was created by a handful of young Native Artists to pass on passion by encouraging youth from our communities and all across Indian Country to pursue their artistic dreams. As working and living artists, Kelly Holmes, Mic Jordan, John and Kenn Little, Tall Paul, Frank Waln, and Tanaya Winder all believe each person has a unique gift to offer the world. These gifts can heal and bring about change. As a collective, they believe we can all help to uplift each other. In doing what they love, the artists hope to show that a career in the arts can be realistic and achievable. The Dream Warriors Scholarship encourages high school Native American / Alaska Native / Native Hawaiian seniors to pursue their creative curiosities and passions by providing a scholarship geared towards these endeavors.
