This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

Layli Long Soldier's first collection Whereas is an award-winning and transformative poetic response to the December 19, 2009, delivery of the Congressional Resolution of Apology to Native Americans. Long Soldier's father is from Pine Ridge. We talk with the poet about her book and the nature of real apologies.
