Obama names Native senior policy advisor... finally!!

Okay, my impatience has finally paid off (not sure that had anything to do with it, but moving on!)

One of the major campaign promises of Obama's to Native people around the country was a Native senior policy advisor - and he's made good on that promise!

From RezNet:
Obama names Cherokee as Native Policy Advisor

From Indian Country Today:
President Obama announces Kimberly Teehee as senior policy advisor for Native American Affairs

I don't know anything about Teehee, so I'm going to check around, see what reaction this gets, and hope for the best!

Kim Teehee has worked for Representative Dale Kildee of Michigan who served as chair of the Native American Caucus in the House of Representatives. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Indian issues.
