WHAT: “Learning TUgether” Webinar -- Crowe & Dunlevy attorney Mike McBride III ’89, chair of the firm’s Indian Law & Gaming Practice Group, will discuss David Grann’s best-seller, “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.”
In the 1920s, oil discoveries made citizens of the Osage Nation the richest people per capita in the world. One by one, the Osage began to be killed off. Grann utilizes years of research and startling new evidence to revisit the shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered, and serves up a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long.
ABOUT MIKE MCBRIDE: Three generations of Mike’s family grew up in and around Fairfax, OK, where many of the murders within the Osage Nation occurred. He has served as general counsel to the Osage Nation and is currently Attorney General for the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma.
Mike Bacon ’89, vice president for Alumni Relations and Development, will introduce Mike McBride and moderate the webinar. All attendees will be able to submit questions, and Mr. McBride will be happy to answer them.
