AHA in the News, Amicus Briefs



An amicus curiae brief submitted by the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians was featured in a Native News Online article by Andrew Kennard. The article summarizes the amicus briefs submitted to the US Supreme Court for Haaland v. Brackeen, a case that questions the constitutionality of the Indian Child Welfare Act (IWCA). The brief submitted by the AHA and the OAH, Kennard writes, “puts ICWA in the context of the United States’ legacy of removing Native children from their homes, dating back to the federal Indian boarding school era.”
