U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell tours the Acoma Pueblo Indian Reservation, located west of Albuquerque, on Thursday. The federally funded Sky City Community School is expected to transfer to Acoma Pueblo control next year. “Of all the things I’ve done in my career, there’s no questions this, in particularly working in Indian County and on tribal education, has been the richest, the most important and the most difficult,” Jewell said.
