EchoHawk at Haskell University amid leadership concerns
Assistant Secretary Larry EchoHawk, the head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs is visiting Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas today.

The visit comes amid concerns about leadership at the tribal college. President Linda Sue Warner, a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, has been on detail since September and all three top administrators at the school are serving in an "acting" basis.

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas), Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kansas), Rep. Dennis Moore (D-Kansas) and Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kansas) have all raised concerns about the issue. Roberts met with EchoHawk and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar recently to discuss Haskell.
