An Oklahoma state court ordered Dusten Brown, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, to show up for a hearing as a dispute over his biological daughter continues.

The hearing is underway in Cherokee County court, The Tulsa World reported. A second hearing in Cherokee Nation tribal court is expected later today, the paper said.

Brown faces the prospect of turning over his daughter, Veronica, to a non-Indian couple from South Carolina. Matt and Melanie Capobianco want to adopt the girl, who is also a Cherokee citizen.

Meanwhile, the Cherokee Nation ordered a former reality television personality off tribal land. Troy Dunn, who appeared at a press conference with the Capobiancos on Wednesday, tried to visit Brown on Thursday but was told to stay away.

Dunn said his family adopted an Indian child.
