This week the class action lawsuit brought by Elouise Cobell (Blackfeet) and others against the United States government ended in a settlement that will provide billions of dollars in funds and establish an Indian Education Scholarship fund to improve access to higher education.
You can research the documentary and social history and the outcome of this case using many of our library databases, including Academic Search Premier, Ethnic NewsWatch, and American Indian Experience.
