President-elect Joe Biden will reportedly nominate Democratic Congresswoman Deb Haaland to serve as Interior Secretary.
If confirmed, Haaland would be the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet Secretary.
Part of her role would include overseeing the Bureau of Indian Affairs which serves the nation's 574 federally recognized tribes.
Haaland, who is a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, was one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress.
The first-term congresswoman represents New Mexico's first congressional district.
