The Institute for American Indian Education hosted a virtual summit on May 15, 2020 to address the impact of the Yazzie/Martinez v. State of New Mexico ruling on the current state of Indian education. The summit was presented in Parts I and II which included updates and opportunities for discussions among all attendees.

PART I

Attorney Gail Evans from the NM Center on Law & Poverty provided a status update on the Yazzie/Martinez case followed by NM State Representative Derrick J. Lente - (D) who addressed the suit and presented options that are currently being considered. Participants had an opportunity to question and engage in discussion on the presentations by Ms. Evans and Representative Lente.

PART II

After a brief break, participants had an opportunity to further discuss the impact of the case on their own schools and community through breakout sessions. Questions that were considered include: Are the remedies in Judge Singleton’s ruling being met? What else is needed to not only comply with the ruling, but to transform public education for American Indians in the state?
