Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Larry EchoHawk recently appointed Paula Hart, a member of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe in New York, to the position of director of the Indian Affairs Office of Indian Gaming. Hart has served as the office’s acting director since May 2008.

“I am pleased that Ms. Hart has accepted this opportunity to continue leading the Office of Indian Gaming,” EchoHawk said in a statement. “Her knowledge and experience in the field of tribal gaming make her a strong member of my team.”

Hart first joined the Office of Indian Gaming in 1994 as a management analyst. With the office in its infancy, Hart had a hand in developing integral policies that are still in effect today.
