Elouise Cobell

Elouise Cobell passed away this Sunday, for all the non-natives who have never heard of her, she was the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit that accused the federal government of cheating Native Americans in its management of Indian land, resulting in a record $3.4-billion settlement.

On behalf of all the Federally recognized tribes in the U.S., I'd like to thank her for everything she's done for our Indian communities.

It really does feel like we lost a great Indian leader for our generation like Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, or Chief Pontiac. R.I.P
