Native Action Network Responds to Elouise Cobell’s Death

Native Action Network joins the country as we mourn the loss of an extraordinary and inspiring leader in Indian Country, Elouise Cobell. A tireless advocate for justice, Elouise dedicated her life to serving her community, her Tribe, and her nation. Her efforts to seek justice and truth in the federal land trust settlement resulted in a landmark case that has been praised by our nation’s highest officials.

Just last month, Native Action Network presented the prestigious Sister Spirit Award to Elouise Cobell. This award was created in 2006 to recognize women forging new paths and new directions for Native People. To date, only 3 women have received this Sister Spirit Award.

Elouise Cobell, a distinguished Native woman will be an inspiration for generations of women and young girls to follow their values; to seek the truth; to fight for equity; and to rise above the deterrents they may face. She will be remembered for her joyous laughter, her hard fought settlement, and her determination to improve the lives of her community.

Our thoughts and prayers go to her family and to all of Indian Country who will miss this amazing woman.
