Nov. 13-Gov. Tim Walz has appointed a lawyer representing the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community in Prior Lake to sit on the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

Sarah Wheelock will be the first Native American judge to sit on the Court of Appeals, according to Friday's announcement by Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, herself the highest ranking Native woman ever elected to statewide office in Minnesota.

Wheelock will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Carol A. Hooten in representing the 2nd Congressional District.
