LINCOLN — An award-winning historian is returning to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to speak about the roles of whites and Native Americans in the development of the western United States.
Andy Graybill, director of the Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University, will speak today at 7:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Graybill's presentation is based on his latest work, “The Red and the White: A Family History Saga of the American West.” The lecture uses the Marias Massacre of 1870 as an example of how relationships between Native Americans and whites were critical to the west after the Civil War.
Graybill taught at UNL from 2003 to 2011.
