president obama nominates first native american woman [View all]

To federal bench

http://www.policymic.com/mobile/articles/65911/president-obama-just-nominated-the-very-first-native-american-woman-for-federal-judge

Diane J. Humetewa, a member of the Hopi tribe and former U.S. attorney in Arizona, has been nominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the district of Arizona as a federal judge. If confirmed, she would be the first active member of a Native American reservation, and first Native American woman to serve as a federal judge. Not only would this bring more diversity to the federal bench, but Arizona’s prominent Native community will finally be represented in a state that is infamous forignoring Native issues.
