By 67AM KPUA News

The U.S. Senate confirmed Esther Kia'aina in a unanimous voice vote Thursday to serve as assistant secretary of insular affairs at the Department of the Interior.

Kia'aina was first deputy director for the state Department of Land and Natural Resources when she was nominated for the federal post. A former chief of staff for Congressman Ed Case, she later worked as a land asset manager for Kamehameha Schools and as chief advocate for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

Kiaaina was born on Guam and has strong connections to Pacific Islands along with extensive experience on Capital Hill.
