There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Martin Scorsese’s most recent film Killers of the Flower Moon. The film, set in the 1920’s, recounts the murder of members of the Osage tribe of Osage County, Oklahoma after oil is found on their land, and the FBI decides to investigate. Explore historical and current Osage issues that go beyond the film with a presentation by Professor Jimmy Lee Beason II.
Jimmy Lee Beason II is a member of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma, from the Eagle Clan. He works as a professor in the Indigenous and American Indian Studies Department at Haskell Indian Nations University. He writes nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and essays about contemporary native issues. To learn more about Jimmy, visit: www.osagescholar.com.
