 Richard Sneed, the Principal Chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, released the following statement upon the confirmation of Deb Haaland to serve as Secretary of the Interior:

"Deb Haaland's confirmation to serve as Secretary of the Interior is a genuinely historic moment, and I do not doubt that our ancestors are looking down upon us with pride at how far we've come since the days of their sacrifices. Not only will Secretary Haaland be the first Native American cabinet secretary, but she will also be an effective and successful administrator of the Department of the Interior. We look forward to working with Secretary Haaland on matters that affect the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and all Native Americans."
