Investigation finds 'abusive' environment at Haskell University


November 26, 2018

Following publication of Indianz.Com's story, the Bureau of Indian Education on Tuesday announced Dan Wildcat will be serving as the "acting" president of Haskell Indian Nations University. Venida Chenault has been "detailed" to another position within the BIE, according to an email sent on a campus-wide list group. She will be working on a "special assignment" for the BIE. Indianz.Com has asked for further information from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. A report published Friday by the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of the Interior found that officials at Haskell Indian Nations University mishandled misconduct complaints, underrepresented crime statistics in 2014 and 2015 and improperly influenced the appointment of a staff member’s family member to a high-level position.
