EchoHawk to resolve Haskell issues after making BIE hire
Assistant Secretary Larry EchoHawk, the head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, said he will address leadership issues at Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas after he hires a new director for the Bureau of Indian Education.

President Linda Sue Warner, a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, has been on detail since September 2009. She happens to be a finalist for the BIE position.

“What I have learned here, and what I think ought to happen, is that the new Bureau of Indian Education director and I are on the same page,” EchoHawk said at Haskell yesterday, The Lawrence Journal-World reported. “Then I think we’ll be able to take the next step.”

EchoHawk said he might hire a BIE director as early as next week.
