Deb Haaland

March 2, 2021

Last week, Senator Mark Kelly got the chance to hear directly from Deb Haaland, President Biden’s choice to lead the Department of the Interior. Her confirmation hearing, before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, provided a wonderful opportunity for all Americans to learn more about this remarkable woman, who is supremely qualified to steward our nation’s public lands.

Haaland was born in Winslow, Arizona and grew up in a military family: her father was a 30-year combat Marine who was awarded the Silver Star medal for saving six lives in Vietnam. Her mother was a Navy veteran. Like most military families, Haaland moved frequently and attended 13 public schools across the country before her family settled in Albuquerque, near her traditional homeland.

Haaland is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna and has Jemez Pueblo heritage. If confirmed, she will become the first-ever Native American cabinet secretary. Just writing those words takes my breath away.

    Sorry for the lack of activity

    March 2, 2021

    Lolma and welcome to the Hopi Times. The past few weeks have been extremely busy with work and school that we have not been able to provide any updates.

    Initially, this site was created as a way to provide our Hopi Senom with real time COVID-19 data, as well as, related news. Especially since our tribal web master(s) was extremely slow to provide this much needed information.

    Now that most of us have received one of the vaccines, there is less need to post statistical data on recent cases. This is not to say that we are out of harms way since there are variants of SARS-CoV-2 and some may affect our people in negative ways. As with any virus, there is the potential for the virus to mutate and possibly render the vaccine(s) ineffective. So please, please do not let our guard down. Please continue to practice social distancing, mask up, wash your hands and do not forget how deadly this virus can be.

    If you have any ideas for how this site can be of use for the Hopi Senom, off and on the reservation, please share using the form below. We always welcome your input and continue to seek contributors.


    Please enter your email, so we can follow up with you.
