Cherokee "History After Dark"

Cherokee Nation Presents 3rd Annual History After DarkCherokee Nation Cultural Tourism will be presenting their 3rd annual History After Dark, an interactive guided historical tour of the John Ross Museum, Owen School and Park Hill, Oklahoma, with a unique Civil War perspective. The tours take place every 30 minutes from 6-10 p.m. with the last tour departing at 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 21–22, from the Cherokee Heritage Center.

There will also be fall festival cultural activities for families both before and after the tour at the Cherokee Heritage Center, including storytelling and face painting.

“The guided historic tours provide a unique opportunity for guests to share in storytelling, which is a time-honored Cherokee tradition,” said Molly Jarvis, Vice President of Cultural Tourism at Cherokee Nation Entertainment in a press release. “History After Dark is a celebration of Cherokee heritage and culture that offers a rare point of view into the lives of some of our most respected Cherokee ancestors. This year we’ll also take a unique look into their roles during the Civil War.”

The experience begins at the John Ross Museum which features exhibits and interactive displays that highlight the life of John Ross, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation for more than 38 years. Exhibits include the Trail of Tears, Civil War, Cherokee Golden Age and Cherokee Nation’s passion for the education of its people.
