“Interior Secretary Nominee Deb Haaland Meets With Tribal Leaders”

“Roundtable included a discussion on how the Biden administration will work with tribes affected by climate change”

“Nine days after being introduced to the world as President-elect Joe Biden’s Interior secretary nominee, New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland met with tribal leaders for a virtual roundtable.

Monday’s meeting was Haaland’s first as the Interior secretary-designate, according to the Biden-Harris Transition Team.

It’s unclear how many tribal leaders participated in the roundtable, where Haaland reiterated Biden’s promise to “fully honor America’s sacred trust and treaty obligations” to tribal nations.”
