Meet The Native Americans That ‘Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost’!

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown October 31st, 2014 Last Updated on: October 15th, 2016

One of my guilty pleasures is watching ghost shows on television. Ghost Adventures, Ghost Lab, Paranormal Home Inspectors, if there is a team of experts hunting for ghosts, I will watch it. That's why I was so happy to see that there was a group of Natives from my home state of Oklahoma that are in the ghost hunting business too. Meet the Native American Paranormal Project!


This unique project grew out of a conservation between two of its founding members while they were watching a ghost show, “How interesting would it be to see Natives doing that on the big screen?” So over the next year they recruited some open minded people and started hunting! Current members include Happy Frejo (Pawnee/Seminole), Marina McKane Bronaugh (Creek/Kiowa) John Factor (Seminole/Kiowa) Steve Jacob (Choctaw) Brian Frejo (Pawnee/Seminole) Albert Bronaugh (Kiowa/Creek) Darah Hudson (Chickasaw/Choctaw/Seminole/Creek) D.D. DeCoteau (Chickasaw/Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate) and Reana Hudson (Chickasaw/Choctaw/Seminole/Creek). The group focuses their attention on historical sites that Natives of the area would have been a part of. So not only are they searching for paranormal activity, they are also telling the story of the people.


One of their recently visited locations was Sacred Heart, a boarding school near Konawa, OK. As you can imagine there would be a lot of stories coming from a boarding school, not all great. A fire went through and burned most of the school back in 1901, but there are still a couple of buildings standing. Locals still report seeings nuns and priests walking the grounds and hearing children's voices. So do you think the investigators found anything? Watch the mini-documentary below to find out.

If you'd like to see some more videos, and find out how you can schedule a screening of their footage at your event, you can visit Native American Paranormal Project on Facebook. They should have their latest video up on their website just in time for Halloween!

Hi, after Hurricane Irma hit in Fl, we were without power for one week and during the nights I saw shadows moving at the back yard. One night I saw feet in moccasin but without a body walking outside. After that my husband start seeing with the corner of his eyes a Native American boy running inside the house. Apparently his spirit is happy because is playing and ignoring us. The boy looks like a teen, no shirt, long black hair. We live in Orlando.

I love the Native Culture and I find it very interesting. I like the idea of a Native Paranormal team I hope you succeed did you smudge any of these locations at Sacred Heart.

osiyo friends ,i also investigate hauntings and the paranormal..though i do not see spirits ..per say i do how ever (24 hrs a day ) see elementals. thats why i started investigating….i so glad to see native american brotheren exploring this side of the world we inhabit….i guess things of spiritual and symbiotic beings are a natural thing to us as we are raised in awareness of those who can not be seen by many become apart of our daily lives and the sign that we are evolving into the enlightened ones or indego people as some call us…to me we are all only SPARKS of the star beings that brought us here…be safe, be strong and brave and become ……our spirits glow eternal as you all know.. osiyo from a keetoowah brother
