Republican U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl recommended Humetewa for the position in January.

She is a member of the Hopi Tribe and has served as a senior litigator and tribal liaison for the U.S. Attorney’s Office since 2001. If confirmed by the Senate, she would become the first American Indian to serve as a U.S. attorney.

Humetewa could not be reached for comment. She previously declined interviews concerning the recommendation.

Kyl said, “I believe her background as a prosecutor, crime-victims advocate, and years of public service make her an outstanding choice to become the next U.S. Attorney for Arizona. I congratulate her and join with Sen. McCain in urging for her swift confirmation.”
