“We’re talking about laws that apply to individual Indians—you know, possession of eagle feathers, but we’re also talking about much, much broader laws that apply to tribes as governments. So issues like reservation status, land use, water rights, gaming—just any issue that you could ever think about that is a legal issue involving tribes is questionable if a court finds that ICWA is unconstitutional because it’s race-based.”

“You don’t have to know anything about Indian Law in order to graduate from law school, to pass the bar, to serve as a judge, to serve on the Supreme Court. And Indian Law is part of constitutional law, its part of federal law. We have people graduating, becoming lawyers, becoming judges that know absolutely nothing about this.” - Jen Deerinwater
