Deb Haaland, a tribal citizen of the Laguna Pueblo, is being sworn in as secretary of the inside and would be the first Native American ever to serve in a U.S. presidential cupboard. Just 4 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to substantiate Haaland, who will handle 500 million acres of federal and tribal land. Haaland may even oversee authorities relations with 574 federally acknowledged tribal nations and is predicted to deal with the legacy of uranium mining on Indigenous land and different areas. Leona Morgan, a Diné anti-nuclear activist and group organizer, says that whereas it’s “impossible to expect one person to correct the centuries of racism and policy that have really devastated our people,” there may be hope that Haaland will use her energy to make necessary adjustments. “She will be held accountable,” Morgan says.
