Killers of the Flower Moon is Martin Scorsese’s’ latest cinematic marvel, depicting the murders of the Osage Native American’s and how their oil wealth brought vultures from all over. Similarly to what happened with HBO’s Watchmen series in how it educated audiences on the Tulsa Black Wall Street killings, Flower Moon presents a time and place in U.S. history where Osage Native Americans owned massive amounts of wealth and even had white people tending to their services. In this world where money and greed ruled all, we again see the white men and women who stood in the face of progress choose to kill and steal the wealth they envied. In a similar fashion to Tulsa and the massacres that took place there, Flower Moon tells more history than our textbooks would ever allow and truly emphasizes how atrocious our crimes towards the Native Americans were.
