Layli Long Soldier — The Freedom of Real Apologies

A single voice of integrity and searching can be a window into a whole world. Layli Long Soldier is a writer, a mother, a citizen of the U.S. and of the Oglala Lakota Nation.

She offers entry points for us all — to events that are not merely about the past, and to the freedom real apologies might bring.
