Nov 12, 2017
The message was delivered on Sunday, November 12, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry, at the Humanist Service.
November is American Indian Heritage Month, and Oklahoma is in the news, with Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. David Grann’s non-fiction book is on Best Seller lists across the country and the story happened here. The names of the towns are familiar: Pawhuska, Fairfax, Gray Horse. Right here, 100 years ago, members of the Osage Nation became the richest people per capita in the world after oil was discovered on their land. Many were mysteriously murdered. In my book group discussion, I listened as my fellow Tulsans talked about remembering and responsibility. We shared about forgetting, forgiving, and being forgiven. But, we left the meeting without figuring out what our responsibility is to responding to the wrongs of the past. Join me as we continue the conversation.
