Oil fueled the 'Flower Moon' Osage murders. Now, tribes embrace a clean energy boom
"Killers of the Flower Moon" – director Martin Scorsese's latest epic, based on the nonfiction book by journalist David Grann – tells the true story of a criminal family's murderous theft from Native Americans in Oklahoma a century ago. University of Arizona professor of law Torivio Fodder, manager of the Indigenous Governance Program, describes the extremes of wealth and violence depicted in the film as typical, in many ways, of how native people throughout the 20th century lost control of oil, coal and other resources.
