As many of you know, NARF’s Founding Executive Director, David Getches, passed away last year. David was most recently the Dean of the University of Colorado Law School and in addition to being a scholar and authority on Indian law, natural resources, and water law, David was an exceptional person, a mentor, and a dear friend. Colorado Law recently released this excellent tribute video featuring David's family, friends, and colleagues, including NARF Executive Director John Echohawk.

NARF Staff Attorney Heather Kendall-Miller has published an article in the Alaska Law Review titled State of Alaska v. Native Village of Tanana: Enhancing Tribal Power by Affirming Concurrent Tribal Jurisdiction to Initiate ICWA-Defined Child Custody Proceedings, Both Inside and Outside of Indian Country. The article discusses the history of confusion leading up to the Alaska Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Tanana case, which held that federally recognized Alaska Native tribes have jurisdiction over ICWA custody proceedings. The Alaska Law Review is based at Duke University School of Law and it examines legal issues affecting the state of Alaska.
