The atrocities committed against the Osage Native Americans in the early 1900’s are horrible. I had no idea this happened in our history and I am so glad to see history saved here.
The Osage Tribe owned the land and the mine rights below it. Even when the land was sold, the mining rights remained with the Osage. Once oil was found, they were millionaires. Per capita they were the richest people in the USA at that time.
But the white American’s saw an opportunity to swindle the money out of them, by marrying into the headlights, and by killing 100’s of Osage. The is a horrific documentation of the some of the deaths and the terrible people behind them.
I want to watch the movie now to see how they portray the characters. This should be taught in the schools and never forgotten.
