As of today, over 120 Alaska Tribes have signed on to the Tribal Amicus Brief in the ICWA case, Brackeen v. Bernardt. Over 100 Alaska Tribes have not yet signed on to the brief, however, and those Tribes are listed below. Would your Tribe like to sign on to the brief to stand in solidarity with Indian Country to protect ICWA? In order to be added to the brief we need an email including:
A statement from an individual (chairperson, executive director, general counsel, etc.) or body (tribal council, etc.) authorized to do so, asking to be added as a signatory on the brief; and
The full name and correct spelling of the Tribe as it should appear on the brief.
Emails should be send to email@example.com. There is no cost to sign on to the brief. The deadline to sign on is Thursday, December 12.
