Native in the Spotlight Diane Humetewa:
U.S. Attorneys are federal prosecutors who represent the U.S. government in the federal courts. Each U.S. Attorney is the chief federal law enforcement officer within his or her particular jurisdiction. Last December Diane Humetewa (Hopi) was sworn in as U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona, marking the first time an American Indian woman has been appointed as a U.S. Attorney. Her office prosecutes violent crimes such as sexual assault and homicide, as well as drug trafficking, fraud, and bank robbery. The Arizona district includes 21 Indian reservations. What's it like being a real life, modern day crime fighter?
