Native America Calling: New administration, new agenda
Wednesday, January 20, 2021

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are set to be sworn in and turn the page on a contentious political chapter.

But even as a new administration starts, there is little optimism for bridging the issues that divide the nation. Still, Biden has signaled a willingness to include tribes in his agenda.

The nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland (Laguna Pueblo) for Secretary of Interior sends a strong message. Restoring protections for Bears Ears National Monument, placing the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s land into trust, and reestablishing the White House Tribal Nations Conference are some of the items that tribal leaders would like the administration to tackle.

Native America Calling will talk with policy experts about what they hope is in store for the next four years.
