Senate Confirms Progressive Climate and Native Champion Deb Haaland to Interior

“Haaland will be the first Native American to serve as interior secretary and the first Indigenous person to serve in a U.S. president’s cabinet ever. As an Indigenous woman, she has faced many deep challenges in her ascent to this position. And Native people have had reason to celebrate her nomination, not only because of her potential impact on climate and Indigenous representation in the cabinet, but also because, as head of the Department of Interior (DOI), Haaland will be in charge of maintaining the government-to-government relationship between the DOI and Native American tribes.

“As Interior Secretary, Haaland would play a monumental role in improving the federal government’s relations with Indian Country,” said Nikki Pitre, director of the Center for Native American Youth, when Haaland’s nomination passed the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. “She will be a fierce advocate for all of us, in a way that no one else can.””

The confirmation of Haaland, a Green New Deal supporter, by the Senate is being celebrated by progressives.

Cru Chocolate

Gold Medal 🥇 at the Academy of Chocolate in London @acadofchocolate for the Guatemalan Bar made with cacao that has been grown and fermented by the farmers themselves.

A chocolate that has uplifted the lives and economies of the people who add their work and knowledge in making sure this bar makes it to your hands.

32 farmers, 5 community leaders, 2 chocolate makers, packaging printed by a local women owned print shop in Auburn, a cacao that traveled over 2,000 miles positively touching the lives of many.

And so proud of Eddie, my life partner, who made these international award Winning chocolates. He is the genius of details, care and patience, and of the ingenuity that takes to make good chocolate.
