WASHINGTON - Wearing a traditional ribbon skirt embroidered with corn and butterflies, Madam Secretary Deb Haaland of the Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico was ceremonially sworn in as the 54th Secretary of the Department of the Interior with an oath administered by Vice President Kamala Harris.

On one side of Haaland were her two sisters, Zoe and Denise. On her other side, holding the Bible, was Haaland's daughter, Somáh Haaland. Harris and Haaland, along with Haaland's family, clapped when the oath was completed. Harris said "History is being made yet again." Haaland responded, "thank you."

The short ceremony was live streamed on Somáh Haaland's instagram account around 11 a.m. Thursday morning.
