People in Interest of K.C., 20SC533

The Colorado Supreme Court grants certiorari to determine whether the Indian Child Welfare Act (“ICWA”) requires trial courts to hold “tribal enrollment hearings” to determine whether it is in the best interests of children to become Indian Children before termination of parental rights; whether trial courts can order departments of human services to enroll children in Indian tribes over a parents’ objections during “tribal enrollment hearings”; and whether the Court of Appeals erred in reversing the judgment of the trial court rather than limitedly remanding the proceedings for further determinations.
