KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON: THE ARC OF JUSTICE
David Grann, the author of Killers of the Flower Moon, illuminates how the struggle for Native American rights extends from the first contact with whites to the present day with Standing Rock.
Mr. Grann highlights the saga of the Osage Indians, who once controlled the central part of the country. After being driven onto a rocky, presumably worthless reservation in Oklahoma, they discovered oil under their land and became the wealthiest people per capita in the world. Then, in the 1920s, they began to be mysteriously murdered. Mr. Grann documents how sinister crimes in American history connect to Native Americans' current fight to control their land and resources.
