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!
