Crow Tribe of Indians Chairman Frank White Clay statement on the nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland to Secretary of the Interior
"The Crow Tribe and People support the first Native woman to be nominated for Secretary of the Interior. This critical role requires a careful balancing of interests and the Crow believes that Representative Deb Haaland will do just that to steward our shared resources. There are many issues that desperately need to be addressed on reservations beyond energy development and regulation, such as embarrassingly substandard housing, inadequate law enforcement, and the tragedy of missing and murdered Indigenous women, to name just a few. Rep. Haaland's nomination both breaks new ground and builds bridges beyond Indian Country and she will be a strong advocate for all Americans."
