Elouise Cobell nominated for Presidential Medal of Freedom

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — It was recently announced that Elouise Cobell will be one of 21 recipients to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom at a White House ceremony on Nov. 22.

Cobell had passed away on Oct. 16, 2011, at 65 years of age from cancer.

The Blackfeet community leader spent nearly 15 years advancing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of 500,000 Indians against the Interior Department. The lawsuit claimed that the Interior Department had stolen or squandered billions of dollars in royalties owed to individual tribal members in exchange for oil, gas and other leases.

The case was settled in 2009 when the Interior Department agreed to the $3.4 billion settlement.
