"Deb Haaland's Visit Home: Grandparents’ Prayers"

"The former Congress member returns home in her first official trip as head of the U.S. Department of the Interior, meets with pueblo leaders"

"Interior Secretary Deb Haaland listened to the concerns of various pueblo governors then vowed for a “new era” in working with tribes, adding President Joe Biden has a shared commitment to restore the nation-to-nation relationship.

Haaland’s first business trip away from the nation’s capital Tuesday included a listening session with a delegation of nine pueblo governors of the All Pueblo Council of Governors at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The two-and-a-half-hour event was an infrequent opportunity for pueblo leaders to get the ear of top ranking officials including New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, U.S. Sens. Martin Heinrich and Ben Ray Lujan and Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez who were in attendance."
