Friday Reads: January 10

I’m currently reading Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It’s a non-fiction story about members of the Osage Indian nation being killed through mysterious causes. I’m reading this story as part of a book club selection at my local library.

I’m learning about the history of the Osage tribe losing their land forcefully through the US government, yet discover a loophole through an allotment deal. This method finds a stipulation where the Osage could have land leased to companies interested in mining their land for a rich resource: oil.

I’m curious in seeing how these discoveries lead to more efficient methods in solving homicide cases among the Osage Nation as the book progresses.
