In a parent's appeal of the juvenile court's jurisdiction findings and disposition order declaring their infant daughter a dependent of the juvenile court and removing her from their custody after the court sustained an amended petition pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code section 3001 alleging the mother had untreated mental and emotional problems, a history of substance abuse and currently abused methamphetamine and marijuana, all of which rendered her incapable of providing regular care for the daughter, and the father's recent violent assault of a female companion placed the daughter at risk of physical harm, the juvenile court's findings and orders are: 1) remanded where the court failed to comply with the requirements of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), 25 U.S.C. section 1900 et seq.; and 2) otherwise conditionally affirmed.
