Surviving the Reign of Terror - The Osage Indian Murders
While the roaring twenties was in full swing, Oklahoma had become the hideout for just about every criminal and con man in the country. Law enforcement officers, lawyers, judges weren't safe.
Oil had been discovered on Osage Indian lands in Oklahoma and Osage men and women holding the oil rights began turning up murdered. This is the true story, the one you won't find in history books, where being an Indian in the 1920s was a dangerous proposition.
