WASHINGTON —   The first female Native American to serve as a U.S. Attorney is expected to soon step down, according to Indian Country  Today.

Indian Country Today newspaper reported that U.S. Attorney Diane J. Humetewa of Arizona will step down ” not because she’s doing a bad job, either. Instead, she will become a casualty of the political appointee process that comes with each new presidential administration.”

At the time of her appointment in December 2007 “Indian country found big reason to celebrate”, the publication noted.

The publication said that  many of  the U.S. Attorneys who were fired during the Bush years were “strong in the area of tribal justice”. It said Humetewa helped to fill that void.

Her replacement is expected to be Dennis Burke, a former aide to then Gov Janet Napolitano, who  now heads up the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
