The University of Kansas is pleased to welcome Representative Sharice Davids to campus as part of our celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. When Rep. Davids was sworn in to the 116th Congress, she became one of the first two Native American women to serve in the United States Congress. An Army veteran, first-generation college student, lawyer, and former White House Fellow, Rep. Davids has dedicated her career to equity, advocacy, and economic and community development.
