Wendell Chino 

The building was purchased by the state in 1998 from the federal government. It was renovated and houses offices of the departments of Indian Affairs, Taxation and Revenue, and Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources.

In 2004, the building was named in honor of Wendell Chino, former president of the Mescalero Apache Nation and the National Congress of American Indians. He helped strengthen Indian self-determination in the 1960s and raised national awareness of Indian issues.
