USDA Leader: 'We are actively looking at how we serve tribal nations'

A top leader at the U.S. Department of Agriculture hailed the successes of the federal agency in its work in Indian Country, in a one-on-one interview with ICT last week.

On Jan. 11, USDA Deputy Secretary Xochitl Torres Small traveled to the Tohono O’odham Nation in Southern Arizona to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new project set to provide high speed and fiber based internet to remote residents of the tribe. It was made possible by a nearly $10 million grant by the USDA.

Hours after that event, Small visited the ICT Newscast studio at Arizona PBS in Phoenix for an interview about the work of the USDA’s Office of Tribal Relations.
