Rep. Markey statement on the passing of Elouise Cobell





The following is a statement from Rep. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts), the ranking member on the House Natural Resources Committee.

In Indian Country, Elouise Cobell is synonymous with justice, and for the last two decades her life was dedicated to that cause. Through persistent, consistent pressure, Ms. Cobell righted century-old wrongs, and forever changed the landscape of the U.S. government’s trust responsibilities to Native Americans.
