She is the first Native person in charge of the federal agency with the most trust and treaty responsibilities in Indian Country.

This is the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, a historic milestone upon which Alaska Natives can continue to build and improve. Today, I joined the @NativeFed Convention to share updates from @Interior.🧵— Secretary Deb Haaland (@SecDebHaaland) December 14, 2021
