Movie Info

When Elouise Cobell, a petite Blackfeet warrior from Montana, started asking questions about missing money from government managed Indian Trust accounts, she never imagined that one day she would be taking on the world's most powerful government. But what she discovered as the Treasurer of her tribe was a trail of fraud and corruption leading all the way from Montana to Washington DC. "100 Years" is the story of her 30-year fight for justice for 300,000 Native Americans whose mineral rich lands were grossly mismanaged by the United States Government. In 1996, Cobell filed the largest class action lawsuit ever filed against the federal government. For fifteen long years, and through three Presidential administrations, Elouise Cobell's unrelenting spirit never quit. This is the compelling true story of how she prevailed.

Janko offers powerful details ... though her scattershot approach and tendency to linger on mundane events undermines the impact.

Melinda Janko makes an impressive directorial debut with this very moving tribute to an intrepid, Native-American crusader who not only spoke truth to power but miraculously emerged victorious.

Although this film lacks polish and doesn't have the dynamism one might hope for with a subject of this type, Cobell herself is a strong presence, and its historic importance is considerable.

Profile of a zealous and gifted Native American heroine.

September 30, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What emerges watching 100 Years is Elouise Cobell's indomitable spirit and passion, her conviction in pursuing a case that seemed impossible to win.
