NAIHC statement on the passing of Elouise Cobell
Posted: Monday, October 17, 2011
The following is a statement from Cheryl Causley, the chairwoman of the National American Indian Housing Council. On behalf of NAIHC, I extend my condolences to the Blackfeet Nation and the family of renowned Indian Country advocate Ms. Elouise Cobell during this time of mourning. We have truly lost a strong, brave and passionate Indian leader. It is a sad day for Indian Country indeed. We lost a true advocate and notable example for all native women. May the Great Spirit be with Ms. Cobell's family and may her work and legacy live through those who carry on her mission and vision.
