100 Years: One Woman's Fight for Justice (#604) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Elouise Cobell is a little known hero whose relentless pursuit of justice led her to find remedy for over half a million American Indian account holders whose funds were held by the U.S. government in trust for a century. An advocate for Native American financial self-determination and independence, she initiated new ways of viewing tribal trust funds and their management. In 1996, she led a lawsuit against the U.S. government for failing to pass on to individual American Indian landowners monies they had earned under oil, timber and mineral leases. "100 YEARS" is the compelling story of Elouise Cobell, a petite Blackfeet warrior from Montana, the great granddaughter of the legendary, Mountain Chief, and how she prevailed.

In The Game (#421) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

The the ups and downs of a girls' soccer team reveal the very real obstacles that low-income students confront in their quest for higher education. Set in a primarily Hispanic neighborhood, Kelly High School on Chicago's south side is an inner city public school struggling to provide the basics for their students, many of whom do not make it to college, either because they cannot compete academically or because their families do not have the financial resources to send them to college. The girls face an uneven playing field - or in the case of the girls at Kelly High School, no soccer field at all - little or no support, problems at home, uncertain futures, discrimination, and poverty, but remain undaunted thanks to their teammates and the dedicated mentoring of their coach.

Frustrated about the lack of progress in the reservation, Moroni Benally, a witty academic LGBTQ candidate with radical ideas, hopes to defeat the incumbent president. Moroni for President follows the political newcomer's grueling, lonely campaign. Fraught with challenges, Moroni soon discovers that theory and a platform does not necessarily prepare you for the daily dirt of politics and the unpredictability of voter's choice.
