On an appeal from the termination of parental rights, the Court of Appeal conditionally reversed and remanded the matter for compliance with the ICWA. Mother and father argued that the Department did not comply with the notice requirements of the Indian Child Welfare Act. The Court of Appeal found that the Department had sent notice to the Apache tribes but had violated the ICWA in failing to send notice to the Cherokee tribes and Karuk tribe referenced by mother. The Department argued that it had contacted grandfather after the jurisdiction pretrial hearing to inquire about his Indian ancestry. However, the Court of Appeal stated that there was nothing in the record to support the Department’s claim that it inquired about grandfather’s potential Indian ancestry.
