Killers of the Flower Moon
Directed by Martin Scorsese
The Osage Nation Foundation's Children of the Middle Waters commemorative limited edition blanket, designed by Chad Renfro and Addie Roanhorse, made its appearance on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, thanks to Osage National Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear. The Martin Scorsese film Killers of the Flower Moon premiered at the festival to rave reviews. Based on the best-selling book of the same name by David Grann, the movie is expected to be released later this year. Several Osages, including Julie O'Keefe, a member of the Osage Nation Foundation board of trustees, and Chad Renfro, a former board of trustees member who also served as a consultant to the movie production, attended the screening.
Osage Artist Registry
The Osage Nation Foundation Artist Registry is an online directory of Osage artists, musicians, actors, dancers, arts and cultural organizations, and even professionals in the arts industry. As part of our ongoing mission to support Osage artists, we have created the ONF Artist Registry to provide online exposure for each artist with their own information and links directly to the artist’s own website. This valuable online resource provides artists additional exposure to be seen and contacted. These pages help all artists gain higher positions in Internet search results – increasing their chances of being noticed. The Osage Nation Foundation's Artist Registry also provides interested parties a way to contact the artist. To become a registered artist, click here.
