The ACLU of Montana held a virtual Town Hall to share highlights from the Yellow Kidney v. Office of Public Instruction litigation. Indian Education for All (IEFA)constitutionally mandates that in consultation with tribal nations, the unique and distinct heritages of the state’s tribal nations are included in the public school curriculum. ACLU of MT and the Native American Rights Fund are representing five tribal nations and 18 families challenging the state’s monitoring process for implementation of IEFA to ensure that the mandate is benefitting students as intended.

Guest Speakers will include Caitlin Borgmann (Executive Director), Sharen Kickingwoman (Indigenous Justice Program Manager), Melody McCoy (Native American Rights Fund Staff Attorney), and Alex Rate (Legal Director).
