Trust and Betrayal in Osage Country exhibit closes
March 1, 2024
The Oklahoma History Center Museum exhibit Trust and Betrayal in Osage Country, which explores the true-life murders of wealthy Osage people in the 1920s, will be displayed in the ONEOK, Inc. Gallery until March 1, 2024.
The crimes are detailed in David Grann’s 2017 book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. A movie based on the murders was released in October 2023, two weeks after this exhibit opened. It is estimated that two dozen members of the Osage Nation were murdered in the 1920s in a plot to get Osage wealth. Most of the crimes were not investigated by local authorities.
The Oklahoma History Center is located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr. in Oklahoma City. It is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Please call 405-522-0765 or visit www.okhistory.org/historycenter for admission costs and group rates.
