Arizona Senator To Be Tribal Liaison
Late last month, the Obama Administration announced a new senior advisor position, the first-ever liaison to Native American tribes on environmental issues, and the man filling the position will be Arizona state Senator Jack Jackson Jr., a member of the Navajo tribe. Jackson Jr.'s job will be to work with tribal governments on how certain environmental projects would impact their lands.
Dr. Eddie Brown is a professor of American Indian Studies at Arizona and executive director of the American Indian Policy Institute. He discussed the Jackson Jr. appointment and the significance of the liaison position.
