December 18, 2020



Fayetteville, Arkansas- The staff of the Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF) would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Deb Haaland (Laguna Pueblo) on her nomination to serve in the Biden-Harris administration as our next Secretary of the Interior. We applaud Haaland’s nomination as she is the first Native American woman to be nominated to a Cabinet level position.

As Secretary of the Interior, we know that Haaland will not only uphold the Trust Responsibility to Tribes but will help Indian Country recover stronger from the pandemic. We are looking forward to the progress Haaland will bring to the Department and our food systems resources that are currently located on America’s public lands. We are confident Haaland will work for a better future for Indian Country and serve our country in a good way as the first Native person to oversee the Department of the Interior.

Haaland’s historic nomination is a victory for Indian Country.
