'Shake it up': Bureau of Indian Affairs undergoes change in the Trump era

 


The Trump administration has named a new director for the Bureau of Indian Affairs regional office in Alaska, addressing a vacancy in an agency described by key lawmakers as lacking “leadership” and even being “in complete disarray.”

The selection of Eugene R. Peltola Jr. fulfills a long-standing request among Alaska Natives to have one of their own in the job. Peltola is of Yupik and Tlingit descent and is a citizen of the Orutsararmiut Native Council.
