NCUIH Statement on President-elect Biden's Nomination of Urban Indian Health Champion Haaland

President-elect Joe Biden nominated New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Haaland as Secretary of the Department of the Interior. If confirmed, she would be the first Native person to hold a Cabinet-level position and the first to lead Interior. In addition to public lands, waterways, wildlife, national parks, and natural resources that fall under the purview of Interior, the agency has wielded untold influence over the nation’s federal policy towards tribes and Native people in general throughout its history. As Congresswoman for New Mexico's Second District and Co-Chair of the Native American Caucus, Congresswoman Haaland has been championed priorities for Urban Indian health, including First Nations Community HealthSource in Albuquerque.

“NCUIH is so pleased to learn that Representative Haaland will be tapped to lead the Department of the Interior and will be the first Native in a Cabinet-level position," said Francys Crevier, CEO of the National Council of Urban Indian Health." As vice chair of the House Committee for Natural Resources, she has been exceptionally supportive of legislation that upholds tribal sovereignty and improves the quality of life for all Native people, including those residing in urban areas. The selection of a Native woman to oversee this agency holds special significance for us because of the sordid history of federal government policies to dispossess indigenous people of their land and culture with an intent to ‘kill the Indian, save the man.’ Today, Urban Indians participate in many programs under the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Bureau of Indian Education, including social services and adult care assistance. We are confident that Representative Haaland will bring the same level of competence and passion to her role as Secretary and congratulate her for this well-deserved nomination.”

PRESS RELEASE: IHS Allocates Vaccines for UIOs

“As the data continues to show, this pandemic is killing our people at devastating rates as Indian Country bears the brunt of this crisis,” said Francys Crevier (Algonquin), NCUIH CEO. “With the approval of the vaccine, there is a glimmer of hope. As urban Indians were left out of the H1N1 vaccine discussions, we are encouraged to see that Urban Indian Organizations and their staff who are providing life-saving care to our communities were among the first wave to receive vaccines.”

General information

Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHP) provide culturally competent, non-duplicative health services to more than 150,000 people annually and are critical to the Indian health care delivery system. The 36 clinics and programs across the United States are a critical safety net for Indian people living in urban centers. Todays Urban Indians are descendants of those tribal people who were relocated in the 1950s as part of the federal relocation program established by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Congress has consistently acknowledged the government's trust responsibility extends to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) living in urban settings. A Senate report relating to the Indian Health Care Amendments of 1987 noted: The responsibility for the provision of health care, arising from treaties and laws in exchange for the cession of millions of acres of Indian land does not end at the borders of an Indian reservation. We thank all of our supporters for recognizing that: •UIHPs overcome cultural barriers •UIHPs save costs and improve medical care by getting Urban Indians to seek medical attention earlier •UIHPs reduce costs to other parts of the Indian Health Service by reducing their patient load •UIHPs are a key provider to many uninsured urban Indians who may not go elsewhere for health care services
