Colorado Senator Ken Salazar, Obama's Pick for Interior Secretary

Ken Salazar is Barack Obama's pick to be Secretary of the Interior.

He will face many challenges ahead with such a large department and for Native Americans who have been hurt by violations of the Indian Civil Rights Act, they will be looking to Salazar to help them.

Disenrollment, banishment, denial of voting rights, land use are among those topics that should be addressed.

As we know the Government Accountablitity Office has suggested that these areas should be looked into as the continue to grow, including the most recent action by the Robinson Rancheria and San Pascual.

Will Ken Salazar respect the rights of the INDIVIDUAL INDIAN?
