(Washington, DC) -- President Biden is set to appoint the first Native American to serve as U.S. Treasurer.
Lynn Malerba will also oversee the newly created Office of Tribal and Native Affairs. The lifetime chief of the Mohegan Tribe's signature will be the first to belong to a Native woman and tribal leader to appear on U.S. currency. Some of her other duties will include overseeing the U.S. Mint and Fort Knox.
In 2010, Malerba became the first woman to serve as chief of her tribe.
