Interior Department Could Have Its First Indigenous Director
The U.S. might soon have its first Indigenous person to serve in a presidential administration. The nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland (D-New Mexico) as President-elect Joe Biden's Director of Interior may be more than symbolic.
According to reporting from the Mountain West News Bureau's Savannah Maher, it signals a potential shift in the relationship between tribes and the federal government.
Maher joins Idaho Matters from New Mexico to tell us more.
