REID STATEMENT ON PASSING OF ELOUISE COBELL

Washington, D.C.Nevada Senator Harry Reid today made the following statement on the passing of Elouise Cobell, for whom he recently co-sponsored legislation which would bestow upon her the Congressional Gold Medal for her perseverance in pursuit of justice for Native Americans:

 

“I’m saddened to hear of the passing of Elouise Cobell, a true champion for justice who improved the lives of American Indians across the country, including thousands in Nevada. Elouise was an extraordinary American who made countless contributions to our country, which is why I believe she deserves the highest honor Congress can bestow upon a civilian. Indian Country – and the entire country – has lost an inspiring leader.”
