Attorney for Appellant: Sharon E. Joseph (Joseph Law Office)

Attorney for Appellee: Breanna Anderson (County Attorney's Office)

Guardian ad Litem for the minor children: Jacqueline Tessendorf (Tessendorf & Tessendorf, P.C.)

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Did the court err in changing the permanency objective? Did the court comply with ICWA and NICWA in finding active efforts were made? Did the court comply with ICWA and NICWA in appointing a guardian and was the appointment supported by the appropriate expert witness testimony?
