Are You a Native American That Deserves a Share of Cobell Trust Suit? See Info in Post

The word that the suit is in settlement brings GOOD NEWS to those who have ownership interest in land held in trust.  This would include Native Americans that have had their citizenship ripped from them by tribal councils like those from Pechanga, Redding, Enterprise, Picayune to name a few.  


On December 21, 2010, The United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted preliminary approval to the Settlement. On December 8, 2010, President Obama signed legislation approving the Settlement and authorizing $3.4 billion in funds.

You may be a part of this Settlement with certain rights in this Settlement if you are an:

•Individual Indian Money ("IIM") account holder (even if the account is currently not active or open),
Individual Indian who has or had an ownership interest in land held in trust or in restricted status,
•Heir to a deceased IIM account holder or individual landowner.

If you are NOT currently receiving quarterly or annual IIM account statements and believe you are part of this Settlement, you will need to File a Claim Form / Register to Participate. You have the option to File a Claim Form / Register to Participate online, or to download and print the Claim Form for mailing. To obtain a Claim Form, you may also call the toll-free number or write to Indian Trust Settlement and request that a Claim Form be mailed to you.

Please be sure to review the Detailed Notice to fully understand your rights.

Is this only for those that have been removed from their tribe? and had received monies from the tribe in the past?

Who is paying this? Would this be the same as say your grandmother owned reservation land but sold it?

This is for those that have trust land, among other things. INCLUDING those that have been removed from tribes by corrupt councils like Redding and Pechanga

Check with them and tell them your situations

Its not just for people who have land,I talked to them ,if your deceased family member had a IIM account then you may be part of it.
