2. Participate from home in a discussion on Zoom from 7-8pm Discuss 100 Years, a film documenting the David vs. Goliath story of Elouise Cobell's courageous fight for justice for hundreds of thousands of Native Americans who were cheated out of billions of dollars by the United States Government.
Over 100 years ago, the United States Government broke up numerous Indian reservations and allotted millions of acres to 300,000 individual Indians. They promised to manage their land and send lease payments for oil, gas, timber, and grazing to the Indian Trust Fund. Instead, the Department of the Interior grossly mismanaged the money owed them.
As the Treasurer of the Blackfeet tribe, Elouise Cobell noticed issues with the trust account and raised questions about the missing money, which lead to the 30-year fight that resulted in the largest class action suit ever filed against the federal government.
To benefit from this discussion, watch the film in advance. While a little over an hour, you will find it well worth your time. https://www.amdoc.org/watch/media/1231/
