Sen. Johnson statement on the passing of Elouise Cobell
Posted: Monday, October 17, 2011
The following is a statement from Sen. Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota). Elouise Cobell never stopped fighting for the rights of Native Americans, no matter the roadblocks or red tape that was put in her path. When I met with her last year, she showed the kind of persistence and determination that allowed her to keep fighting for the rights of Indian Country for more than a decade. Our nation has lost a true fighter, and my condolences are with her friends and family during this difficult time.
