It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved sister, Nina Loretto. In 2004, Nina began her law enforcement career with Jemez Pueblo Tribal Police Department. In 2009, she joined the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Office of Justice Services (OJS) family as a patrol officer with the Southern Pueblos Agency. During her career she was promoted to a Lieutenant at the Northern Pueblos Agency and then to a Special Agent with the Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Nina also served as a firearms instructor and a field training officer.

Nina was dedicated to serving Indian Country and had a positive outlook for every situation. She always had a smile from ear to ear and loved to laugh. Nina often talked about her beloved, “Spud”, Fred, “Mom”, “Dad” and Brothers. She had a love for horses and talked often about her horse riding adventures.

On October 18, 2020, Nina lost her long battle with cancer. She will forever be in our hearts, never to be forgotten. Thank you, Spud, Fred and Mom for sharing Nina with her BIA/OJS family.
