Haskell president stuck on detail after nearly eight months
Linda Sue Warner, the president of the Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas, has been on detail for nearly eight months.

Warner, a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, was sent to Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute in New Mexico last September. She was there for three months.

In January, Warner was transferred to a Bureau of Indian Education post in Oklahoma. She's going to stay there until Assistant Secretary Larry EchoHawk, the head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, makes a decision about the new director of the BIE.

"They’re going to leave her on detail until the new director comes on board,” BIA spokesperson Nedra Darling told The Lawrence Journal-World. “Hopefully, it won’t be weeks."

Warner became president of Haskell in April 2007.
