Senate Confirms First-Ever Native American Woman As Federal Judge
Congratulations to the Honorable Diane Humetewa!
Am I happy the Senate finally confirmed a Native American Judge? Indeed I am. I just have one more thing to say: It’s about damn time…
The Senate quietly made history on Wednesday night when it confirmed Diane Humetewa as a federal judge — the first Native American woman to ever hold such a post.
Humetewa was confirmed 96-0 to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. She is a former U.S. attorney in Arizona and a member of the Hopi tribe. She is now the first active member of a Native American tribe to serve on the federal bench and only the third Native American in history to do so.
