“This is an all-out nuclear war attack on ICWA,” said Mary Kathryn Nagle, a Cherokee attorney for the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center who filed a brief in support of the law. “We have not seen that before. That’s either ironic or interesting, because the law has been on the books for 44 years, and this is the first time the constitutionality of the law has been challenged. This is unprecedented.”

ICWA Part II. Yesterday I talked about ICWA what it is & why it's being challenged Nov 9th in the Supreme Court. Now I would like to explain the challenge itself and why it's invalid. The challenge is that ICWA (and by extension the existence of tribes) is racially based.— Auntie Weyodi's Bad Advice Column🐀 (@weyodi) November 7, 2022
