Deb Haaland on Principles & Values

 

 


Practices the "Seven Generation rule" for future decisions

Haaland, like millions of Indigenous peoples, strongly believes in and practices the Seven Generation rule. The rule says that all significant decisions must be made with the next seven generations in mind, and includes preserving and protecting the water, the earth and the two leggeds and the four leggeds for people you will never meet--at least in this life.

Growing up in my mother's Pueblo household made me fierce

Haaland would be the first Native American Cabinet secretary. "A voice like mine has never been a Cabinet secretary or at the head of the Department of Interior," Haaland wrote in a tweet. "Growing up in my mother's Pueblo household made me fierce. I'll be fierce for all of us, our planet, and all of our protected land. I am honored and ready to serve."

As Pueblo woman feels connected to the earth

I learned from my parents to revere nature when I was growing up, and as a Pueblo woman, I feel connected to the earth and feel a responsibility to carry on the legacy of environmental stewardship of countless generations who came before me. We as human beings depend on the planet for the things we need to live - clean water; the food we need that we get from farming, hunting and fishing; shelter; everything. It has been that way since time immemorial.
