In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio, we talk with Mark Williams, John Factor, and Albert Bronaugh of the Native American Paranormal Project (NAPP). "How
interesting would it be to see Natives doing that on the big screen?"
That was the basis of a conversation between Happy Frejo and Mark
Williams back in 2010 while watching a cable ghost hunting show. And the
idea was planted. A year later Mark Williams, a Choctaw filmmaker with
Native Boy Productions, began to see it through and would ask Happy
Frejo, a Pawnee/Seminole motivational speaker and performer, about
hosting a documentary about a Native Paranormal site. She said yes, and
the Native American Paranormal Project was born.

Mark began recruiting team members, all the while
researching a location for his documentary. Only a few criteria were
required from each member: they would have to be Native American, have
an open mind, and be willing to share their experience on camera. As for
the location, it would need to have a known history of a paranormal
presence and most importantly have a Native American past. The site was
to be Concho Indian Boarding School in Concho, Oklahoma. The team
members would be 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), Reana Hudson
(Chickasaw/Choctaw/Seminole/Creek), and in later documentaries Quese IMC
(Pawnee/Seminole).

In October 2011, the team visited Concho and came
back with some amazing footage. It began as a one-time project, but at
the documentary premiere in Oklahoma City, it turned out to be a
standing-room-only event. The feedback was amazing and then the requests
came for another screening, more documentaries, more investigations,
and NAPP would then become a documentary series.

"Four
feature documentaries and a handful of mini documentaries later,
NAPP has gained many fans and supporters from the Native community
and from the peers in their field," Mark said. "But it's more than just
paranormal footage or a documentary, because each location tells the
story of our people. So we treat each location with respect, acknowledge
its cultural significance and historical impact on our people, and at
the same time give that past a voice to share their story through our
findings."
