100 Years: One Woman’s Fight for Justice, Director Melinda Janko. The story of Elouise Cobell’s 30-year fight for justice for 300,000 Native Americans, whose mineral rich lands were grossly mismanaged by the United States Government. In 1996, Cobell filed the largest class action lawsuit ever filed against the federal government. Cobell's indomitable spirit persisted for 15 years and through three Presidential administrations. This is the compelling true story of how she prevailed and made history with a $3.4 billion settlement. (Fire in the Belly Productions, 2016, 75 min.).
Q&A with filmmaker Melinda Janko and John Echohawk, Executive Director, Native American Rights Fund, will follow the film.
