Chairman of Nevada Indian Commission named to governor’s cabinet

CARSON CITY — The chairman of the Nevada Indian Commission has been named by Gov. Brian Sandoval to serve in his cabinet, the first time the tribes will have representation on the cabinet.

Sandoval said Tuesday he chose Ted Quasula of Henderson to serve on the cabinet of top state executives with the lieutenant governor and an official from the Nevada System of Higher Education.

Quasula is a member of the Hualapai Tribe of Northern Arizona. He is general manager of Grand Canyon Skywalk, a transparent, horseshoe-shaped, cantilever bridge in Arizona near the Colorado River. The tourist attraction is on the edge of a canyon in the Grand Canyon West area.

Quasula worked for the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs for 26 years, served as chief of police for the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe from 2003 to 2007 and was appointed this year to the Indian Law and Order Commission by President Barack Obama.
