Citizens of new EU member states can however travel without visas throughout Europe, and their non-EU family members can travel freely with them. Although this decision is limited in application, it serves as a roadmap for other ICWA litigation intending to overturn ICWA and we should expect future litigation seeking to undermine tribal sovereignty and federal Indian law writ large.
