Native American women in office

The article "Multiplying Indian Casinos Draw Critics' Fire," Aug. 2, states that Associate Commissioner Jana McKeag of the National Indian Gaming Commission is the highest-ranking native American woman serving in the executive branch.

Ada Elizabeth Deer, an enrolled member of the Menominee Indian Tribe, was sworn in as the new assistant secretary of the interior for Indian Affairs on July 16. Perhaps it is only a matter of interpretation, but I believe that an assistant secretary might be considered higher than an associate commissioner. Roger Jensen, Zuni, N.M.
