Community Co-Host Nick Burns spoke with author Margaret D. Jacobs, professor of history and director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. In her new book, After One Hundred Winters: In Search of Reconciliation on America's Stolen Lands (Princeton University Press, October 2021), Jacobs traces the brutal legacy of systemic racial injustice to Indigenous people that has endured since the nation’s founding. Explaining how early attempts at reconciliation succeeded only in robbing tribal nations of their land and forcing their children into abusive boarding schools, Jacobs shows that true reconciliation must emerge through sustained relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people that are rooted in specific places and histories
