The Cherokee Nation tapped some of their elders to tell some spooky Halloween stories they learned or experienced growing up.

In this first video Cherokee Elders George Polecat Jr., Francis Polecat, and Nancy Adair tell some spine-tingling tales.

This second video features Cherokee Elder Ruth Bryant telling a story from her childhood about a fireball and a graveyard. This one has a logical explanation, but as kids, she and her sister didn’t know that at first.
