NARF lawyer being considered for White House post
Heather Kendall-Miller, a Native American Rights Fund attorney from Alaska, confirmed she is being considered for a top White House post but said an announcement might not come for two to three months.

Kendall-Miller, who is Athabascan, said she hasn't been offered the job of the top Indian affairs adviser to President Barack Obama. That contracts an Indian Country Today story about her possible appointment.

"It appears that the (White House) won't be ready to fill this position for another two to three months, so I may not have information to share for some time," Kendall-Miller told The Juneau Empire.

Kendall-Miller became known during the campaign for her critiques of Alaska Gov. Saran Palin (R), who was the Republican nominee for vice president.
