FILM DESCRIPTION: 100 Years: One Woman's Fight for Justice is the story of Elouise Cobell, a petite Black feet warrior from Montana, and her 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. For fifteen long years, and through three Presidential administrations, Elouise Cobell's unrelenting spirit never quit. This is the compelling true story of how she prevailed and made history.
