The Senate confirmed Riverside Superior Judge Sunshine Sykes to serve as a judge in the California Central District of California May 18.

Sykes is the first Native American federal judge in California, the first federal judge from the Navajo nation, and the fifth Native American federal judge in the United States, according to the Ninth Circuit news release.

“We have mixed emotions in that we are losing a valuable member of our bench who cannot be easily replaced, but are extremely proud of Judge Sykes’ historic confirmation to the District Court,” wrote Riverside Superior Court Presiding Judge John Monterosso.
