Deb Haaland as the first Indigenous secretary of the interior, a sprawling department with direct influence over the quality of lie on Indian reservations. Haaland received a boost this week in the closely divided Senate when Sen. Joe Manchin, a conservative Democrat, endorsed her; even with a party-line vote, she’s likely to win confirmation.
