A historic day for Indian Country to have Deb Haaland as Interior Secretary

A historic day for Indian Country to have Deb Haaland as Interior Secretary

For nearly two centuries, the U.S. Department of the Interior has been responsible for much of this country’s dealings with Tribal Nations. Interior’s divisions include the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Bureau of Indian Education, and the Bureau of Trust Funds Administration. Yet in all that time, no American Indian has ever served as the Department’s top leader, nor has there ever been an American Indian appointed as a Presidential Cabinet-level Secretary.
