Native America
Elouise Cobell's Accounting Coup

By Julia Whitty

A profile of the late Blackfeet woman who successfully sued the federal government for billions on behalf of ripped-off Native Americans.

Update: Elouise Cobell died on October 16, 2011, at the age of 65. This profile was written as she was 9 years into her 16-year legal quest, which eventually won $3.4 billion for a half-million Native Americans—the largest settlement in US history.

To those concerned that the United States can't afford a Cobell v. Norton settlement, she says, "It's not your money and never was."

Rightfully so, behind all of the "The black folks are being kept down" is the fact that Native Americans have suffered far worse than those folks sold by their own kind in Africa and brought here by honkie cracker motherfuckers looking to profit. I agree 100%, congrats to the natives, they finally got what they deserved, I wish for more to come for them, because THEY actually have something to BITCH about, unlike some other groups in this country.
