Editor’s Note: The Office of the Governor of Guam issued the following statement on the confirmation of Rep. Deb Haaland as President Joe Biden’s secretary of the Department of the Interior:
“As the first Native American to lead the Department of Interior and hold a Cabinet position, this is a significant moment. Rep. Haaland has devoted her life to protecting our natural resources and our nation’s indigenous heritage for future generations. We look forward to working with her to advance policies that would preserve and restore our land, increase outdoor recreational opportunities, and tackle the serious issue of climate change—policies that benefit Guam and our sister territories.”
