A First Step

The first Native American female federal judge…..the third Native American federal judge ever. A step, a small step, but in a good direction. Diane Humetewa can begin to draw attention to all Native Amerian issues simply by being visible. Of course more needs to be done, everywhere. 

The Senate confirmed Diane Humetewa to the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, making her the first-ever Native American woman to serve on the federal bench.
