Remembering Elouise Cobell
October 19, 2011
Elouise Cobell died last Sunday from complications related to cancer. You may not know her name, but she’s very familiar to people who think about the management of Indian land. Elouise Cobell led a 15-year legal battle with the federal government on the issue, and the Cobell vs Salazar case won the largest settlement in US history-3.4 billion dollars.
Elouise Cobell is remembered by many as being a tireless champion for the rights of her people. KFAI’s Allison Herrera talked with Terry Janis from the Indian Land Tenure Foundation about Cobell’s legacy.
