Marland’s Grand Home will offer a special program for Native American Heritage Month in November.  Hallie Winter, Curator and Director of the Osage Museum in Pawhuska, will present the “History of the Osage Tribe” at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in the living room of Marland’s Grand Home.

To guarantee seating, which is limited to 60 seats, please call Marland’s Grand Home by Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Winter’s presentation will include information on the cultural traditions of the tribe, the origins of the tribe and how they came to be in Oklahoma, and the 1920s Osage murders and outcome that began the Federal Bureau of Investigations.  The Killers of the Flower Moon, written by David Grann, has been a popular item of conversation and will be discussed along with some of the book’s characters.

The “History of the Osage Tribe” is part of an on-going series of “Listen and Learn” presentations at Marland’s Grand Home.  Future presentations will include “The Big V (Vanselous) Ranch,” which is located west of Ponca City and was the nation’s largest producer of mule power in the early 1900s, and “E.W. Marland’s Stone Barn,” which is located on Lake Road and was used to carve the stone used in the construction of the Marland Estate.

Marland’s Grand Home is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.  Please call (580) 767-0427 or visit marlandgrandhome.com for more information.
