Some of the work has been symbolic — Interior Secretary Ken Salazar early in the administration restored the historic painting "Navajos Breaking Camp" in his office, after it had been mothballed during the Bush administration, for example.My understanding is that many of the Native American lobbies are quite effective. The attitude indicated in that last sentence quoted is a good one for progressive groups to take on the Obama Administration: we recognize real accomplishments, and we expect you to keep delivering.
