Victor Harris

Victor Harris is the Big Chief of the Spirit of Fi Yi Yi and the Mandingo Warriors, a Mardi Gras Indian tribe he began with his best friend, Collins “Coach” Lewis, in 1984. Together with his sewing committee, he transformed Carnival into a downtown New Orleans tradition by masking as an homage to his African heritage. 2018 marked 52 years of consecutive masking, more than any other chief in the history of the tradition.
