N.M. Governor Picks a Navajo


January 29, 2019

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has selected a member of the Navajo Nation to serve as the New Mexico Public Education Department’s deputy secretary of Identity Equity and Transformation. Kara Bobroff is of the Salt People Clan, born for the Lakota People. Her family is from Ramah, N.M., though she now resides in Albuquerque.

“On behalf of the Navajo Nation Council, I would like to congratulate Deputy Secretary Bobroff on her appointment by Gov. Grisham,” Navajo Nation Speaker Pro Tem Seth Damon said. “It is encouraging to know we have an ally in that position whom comes from the Navajo Nation and understands the importance of improving our education system and promoting equity in regards to resources and services for Native American students.”
