FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – For Native Americans, Deb Haaland is more than an elected official on track to become the first Indigenous secretary of the Interior Department.

She is a sister, an auntie and a fierce pueblo woman whose political stances have been molded by her upbringing. News of her historic nomination electrified Indian Country.

Tribal leaders and organizations for weeks have urged people to write and call U.S. senators who will decide if she’ll lead the agency that has broad oversight over Native American affairs and energy development.
