Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland delivers remarks about tribal sovereignty and Native women’s safety on February 12, 2024.

Haaland, who leads the Department of the Interior, is the first Native person to serve in a presidential cabinet. She spoke an event hosted by the National Congress of American Indians and the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center in Washington, D.C.

The two organizations celebrated the 20-year anniversary of their efforts to restore tribal sovereignty and increase Native women’s safety through NCAI’s Violence Against Women Task Force and Restoration Magazine, a publication of the NIWRC.
