Full Description

What do land acknowledgments and debates over land back reveal about the making of Minnesota? How did relationships to the land transform over time? What is the connection of the land back movement? Indigenous history is Minnesota history. Join Jacob Jurss as he explains how our modern-day land configuration came to be, and why it is an important element in the understanding of the making of Minnesota.

Jurss is an adjunct professor of United States and Indigenous history at the University of St. Thomas and Metropolitan State University. His current book project is "Bountiful Boundaries: Western Great Lakes Indigenous Borderlands and American Statecraft."
