Republican Debra Haaland will make US history in 2021. As a member of the Laguna Pueblo, she will be the first Native American in the powerful federal agency. She will oversee the nation’s treaties with native tribes and be in charge of public lands, waterways, wildlife, national parks, and mineral wealth. Haaland is one of many historic Cabinet picks by Joe Biden. She will play a key role in Biden’s promise for broad efforts to curb carbon emissions.
