ABOUT HARRIS LOVATO
"We’re all brothers and sisters who are meant to help each other. Peaceful Winds is a very spiritual place to help you get back on your feet." –Harris Lovato
Harris Lovato is originally from the Jicarilla Apache Nation. Born and raised in the Northern part of New Mexico, Harris grew up near the 'four corners.' He has been sober for nearly a decade and as the Peaceful Winds House Manager, Harris wants to pass along what he has learned to help the next generation start a good journey for themselves. "It is possible to get clean and sober and be an example to the rest of the native nations. You must look deep inside yourself to figure out who you are. The Creator would want you to be a good person and live a good life in a good way," states Harris Lovato. He believes that one must stay strong and that it's okay to get support and strength from each other.
