Editorial: Patience running out on Haskell leadership issue
"After commencement ceremonies on Friday, the 2010 graduates of Haskell Indian Nations University are on their way. Unfortunately, the school they leave behind is still struggling with a lack of leadership and direction while federal officials continue to drag their heels on addressing the situation.

Haskell’s president, Linda Warner, has been absent from the campus since September, when the Bureau of Indian Education sent her to the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute in Albuquerque, N.M. In January, she was moved to the BIE’s regional office in Oklahoma City where she was said to be awaiting a decision on the hiring of a new BIE director, a post for which she was named as a finalist.

On Friday, it was announced that Keith O. Moore, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, will be the new BIE director. He reportedly is the person who will determine whether Warner will return to Haskell or someone else will replace her as president. In the meantime, Haskell is without a fully engaged president and is struggling to maintain its funding and direction for the future."
