Fifteen WHA Native American students attended The Red Lake Schools Tribal Justice Day.
The Honorable Justice Anne McKieg was our host. She is the first Native American Supreme Court Justice in the country. She was raised in Federal Dam. Three other justices also attended and held workshops for our students. What a great trip.
