Danny and Derek welcome back Daniel Immerwahr, Bergen Evans Professor in the Humanities at Northwestern University, to discuss his essay in Harper’s Magazine reviewing Pekka Hämäläinen’s book Indigenous Continent: The Epic Contest for North America. They touch on reclaiming the narrative of Native American history, the resistance-focused vs lachrymose conception of American history in liberal historiography, the political ends of these two approaches, the 1619 Project, and more.
