"100 Years" is the David vs. Goliath story of Elouise Cobell, a petite, Native American Warrior who filed the largest class action lawsuit ever filed against the United States Government and WON a $3.4 billion settlement for 300,000 Native Americans whose mineral-rich lands were mismanaged by the Department of the Interior.

  • To Reflect In Shame by 9

    100 Years: One Woman's Fight for Justice is a tale of how my ancestors and your ancestors committed some of the most vile acts against humanity upon these Native Americans. What should have been a Class Action $175 billion case filed in 1996 that represented over 300,000 tribal members became an $8 billion settlement offer in 2008 under President Bush, which was then rescinded and resettled under President Obama in 2009 for $3.4 billion-of which only $1.4 billion went to the tribal members(approximately $1,800 each).
