Deadline is August 15 at 12pm EASTERN. If you are SIGNING ON for a tribe, email

If you want to know if a tribe has signed on or need a copy of the brief, feel free to harass me at

From NARF:

Tribes – show your support for the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)! All federally recognized Tribes are invited to sign on to the Haaland v. Brackeen Tribal Amicus Brief in a show of unity and support for ICWA, Native children, and Native families.

There is no cost to join this brief and over 260 Tribes have already signed on. 

Tribal Nations interested in signing the brief must do so no later than next Monday, August 15, 2022. If your Tribe would like to add its name to the brief, please reach out to NARF Senior Staff Attorney Erin Dougherty Lynch at as soon as possible.

Please note that if your Tribe signed on to a previous brief when this case was before the Fifth Circuit, you will NOT be automatically added to this Tribal Amicus Brief―NARF still needs is an affirmative statement that your Tribal Nation would like to join the brief.

Again, please email Erin Dougherty Lynch at to sign on to the brief.  If you would like a copy of the brief or have questions about whether your Tribe has already signed on to the brief, please email
