Jim Gray served as the Osage Nation chief from 2002 to 2010 and is the principal consultant at D.B.A. Gray Consultants. "I can’t escape from this history," Gray wrote in a guest column. "As an Osage, my great-grandfather, Henry Roan, is murdered in this film. As a former Chief of the Osage Nation, I had to deal with many unresolved issues that are associated with this period."
He speaks with Editorials Editor Ginnie Graham about his thoughts on having the Osage 'Reign of Terror' history told through the "Killers of the Flower Moon" book and movie.
