Event Details

Come join us at a free event, Saturday, November 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for a thoughtful book discussion making connections between art and literature.

Artists Frederic Remington & Charles Russell often depicted a romanticized past in which American Indians freely roamed the plains.  However, by the time both artists were active in their careers, many indigenous tribes were living on reservations, including the Osage people.  By the 1920s, after oil was discovered underneath their land, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma.  Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off.

Join your friends at the Sid Richardson Museum for their next Tall Tales book discussion as they read and discuss Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann.  Please read the selected book prior to the program.
