National Congress of American Indians ousts first Native attorney over Zoom


WASHINGTON, D.C — The National Congress of American Indians has ousted the first Native person who served as its highest-ranking attorney, less than two weeks after a new chief executive officer came on board.

Derrick Beetso, a citizen of the Navajo Nation, was fired as NCAI’s general counsel on Friday. He reported his termination in a post on social media.

“On Friday afternoon I was fired via Zoom, with no notice or consultation, by NCAI’s new CEO, Dante Desiderio,” Beetso wrote in the late-night post.
