Secretary Deb Haaland

Congratulations to Deb Haaland for becoming this country's first Indigenous Secretary of the Interior!

Deb Haaland made history in 2018 as one of the first Native American women elected to Congress and she continues to make history today as the first Native American to ever hold a Cabinet position.

As the head of the Department of the Interior, Haaland will oversee federal agencies whose operations and policies directly impact Indian Country in a multitude of ways. To have a Native lead one of the nation's highest offices is an unprecedented opportunity for this government to begin truly serving and uplifting its Indigenous peoples.

We understand that no single person can solve all the issues that face Native people today. However, we hope that Secretary Deb Haaland will represent the larger coalition of Indigenous voices that fight every day to improve tribal communities.

We also hope that the Biden-Harris administration takes this momentum and continues to keep the many promises made in their vow to empower tribal nations to govern their own communities and make their own decisions.
