Larry EchoHawk won't comment on BIA nod


Indian Country is abuzz with talk about the new head for the Bureau of Indian Affairs but the man at the center of the speculation isn't commenting.

Larry EchoHawk, a lawyer from the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma, has been selected by President Barack Obama to lead the agency, according to tribal leaders and key members of Congress. But in an e-mail to Indian Country Today he said he couldn't comment on the potential nomination.

EchoHawk's brother, John, served on Obama's transition team at the Interior Department.
