This winter we are delighted to welcome four guests from the Osage Nation—assistant creative director Addie Roanhorse, cultural consultant Marla Redcorn-Miller '89, actor and consultant Yancey Red Corn and TJ Redcorn from the art department discuss their role shaping the film Killers of the Flower Moon.

Based on David Grann's bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon depicts the Osage Reign of Terror, a period in the 1920s when Osage were exploited and murdered for control of their land and oil rights. Given this subject matter, there is campus-wide interest in exploring how the film fits in with the historical record, issues surrounding who is allowed to control energy resources, and how we go about representing and unpacking stories about Indigenous people in ways that honor their cultures.

The event will begin with a reception (refreshments will be served), followed by the panel conversation moderated by Jami Powell (Curator of Indigenous Art at Dartmouth's Hood Museum) and Q&A with the audience.

This event and residency, including class visits, meals and meetings with students, is made possible through the generosity of Dan Bernstein '87 and Claire Foerster, and campus-wide co-sponsors including the Office of the President, Hopkins Center for the Arts, the Hood Museum of Art, Office of the Provost, Department of Native American & Indigenous Studies, Irving Institute for Energy and Society and the Dartmouth Libraries.

Programmed in conjunction with Dartmouth's Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration.
