Healdsburg resident Christina Snider has been appointed tribal advisor to Gov. Jerry Brown and executive secretary to the state’s Native American Heritage Commission.

Brown established the $161,496 a year position with a 2011 executive order that sought to bolster communication and collaboration between state government and Native American tribes.

Snider, 30, is a member of the Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians. Her legal career includes service as a staff attorney at the National Congress of American Indians and as a law clerk in the Office of Tribal Justice at the U.S. Department of Justice.

The commission on which she will serve as executive secretary is a nine-member body that identifies and catalogs places of special religious or social significance to Native Americans, as well as known graves and cemeteries of Native Americans on private lands in the state.
