"Elouise Cobell"

January/February 2012 issue of Poverty & Race

We dedicate this issue of Poverty & Race to Elouise Cobell, who passed away in October. A member of the Blackfeet tribe, she was the consistent and ultimately effective force that has forced the federal government, via litigation and political pressure over a 15-year period, to agree to the largest class action settlement ever: $3.4 billion, benefiting some 500,000 people, in compensation for mismanagement of Indian trust funds since the late 1800s.
