In an appeal from the termination of parental rights, the court found that the juvenile court did not make a finding, as required by Welfare and Institutions Code section 366.26 and the Indian Child Welfare Act, that continued custody of the minor would likely result in serious physical or emotional damage to the minor. The order terminating parental rights was reversed and the matter was remanded to the juvenile court for further proceedings in compliance with the ICWA.
