President Joe Biden is welcoming a new Native adviser to the White House, the third of his administration.

Elizabeth Hidalgo Reese is a citizen of the Pueblo of Nambé, one of the six Tewa language speaking tribes in northern New Mexico. She comes to federal service from Stanford Law School, where she was the first ever Native faculty member.

"She's awesome," an expert in tribal law and policy told Indianz.Com on Wednesday.
