Hoopa Valley Tribal Court Leads Effort to Keep Kids in School


When the Klamath-Trinity Joint Unified School District asked Judge Richard Blake to speak at the graduation ceremony at Hoopa Valley High, the district’s high school, he accepted the invitation under one condition.

“My commitment to them,” said Blake, chief judge of the Hoopa Valley Tribal Court, in an interview with The Chronicle of Social Change, “is when they can get 75 percent of their incoming freshmen to graduation, I will speak. I have been judge for 14 years, and that has yet to happen.”
