  1. Haaland is a member of the Laguna Pueblo people and a 35th-generation New Mexican.

    • @Jek Porkins Wow you folks are really STUPID.

    • Ha! Show’s what you know. LMFAO. Uneducated fool.

    • @Eric Angiolillo you are so intelligent that you assume she is uneducated. You FOOL.
      FYI, Congresswoman Haaland grew up in a military family; her father was a 30-year combat Marine who was awarded the Silver Star Medal for saving six lives during Vietnam. You have simply proven you are a rasict.

    • @Yep USA how?.. Were they the first people there? If so, I politely recant my question.

      @Alicia Kay lol and im racist against who… or thats right you think im white lol. im not racist i hate everyone equally..

  2. I don’t understand why her heritage wouldn’t be her knowledge and skillset. Someone familiar with the needs of the community and familiar with the shortcomings of the dept. I mean you wouldn’t put an oil lobbyist to lead the EPA? Now that would be unethical.

  3. ☺️🙏❤️

  4. 🇺🇸👍👏🙌👏👍🇺🇸

    aww man, this comment section is gonna get ugly……

    • @Ricardo Barahona ok, I misunderstood your post. Cheers!

    • @Kevin Dwelle I’m native I guess I better get a castle and golden toilet from something that happened a couple hundred years ago. If the only reason why they picked her was because of something that happened 100 of years ago. People should be judged by their character not from their color of their skin. I can’t remember if Martian Luther king said that but I’m pretty sure he did.

      @Equality To All lol why is that black q ball from Michigan telling “Trumpers” to “tread carefully” and inciting violence?

    • Yeah but enough about pathetic liberals for the last 5 years

    • that means US politics is dead, you do not have a leader at all in any candidate right, that is the reality, someone has to put a guy who is 78 years old, where are the people that is younger, are they all gone, the pathetic thing about US politics right now is that there is no candidate left, it seems the younger people are just gone,

    • Because ‘they’ have this idea that: if they keep calling us moron, stupid, sheep, etc … we will switch side and vote RED in 2 years. Totally illogical.

    • These comments are not nasty. I dont think you read them.

  8. On behalf of my fellow Anishinaabe, I’d like to say, Mii gwetch /Thank you.

  9. First Nation as Interior Secretary… genius!!

  10. Great choice

  11. A couple hundred years late….more like twice that….

      Uh, the Indians lost.

    • @zachelberry0188 And we aren’t Indians, we aren’t from India. We are indigenous Americans Aka First nation

      @natáyo – Real Americans………..given the title of ‘Indigenous Americans’ or ‘First Nation’. Perhaps we should rename current Americans as ‘Second Nation’ and give them their rightful place in the pecking order as second class Americans!

    • @Incredulity Magnet I’d say the way we’re being treated makes us the second class peoples. We get denied the help we deserve and need and its extremely infuriating. We lost almost everything and we’re continuing to lose. No matter what it seems we will always be the loser, the second class Americans. It’s a sad sad world for us indigenous peoples but we’re keeping our heads held high.

  12. we need trees plz, we need shade even if we make money slower, we need trees

    About time….

  14. I’m here for the high check bone, Elizabeth Warren jokes.. come on people!

  15. Meanwhile 300 years ago the land was filled with woman running nations.

  16. Beautiful.

  17. It’s about time that native Americans have a say in what should happen on Indian lands.

  18. Strong move. Here’s an idea. Can we have more news on what Biden is doing. Less about what Trump is not doing!
