Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Join the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History for a presentation on Lewis Ross, brother of Chief John Ross of the Cherokees.

Join Rachel Whitaker from the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History for a presentation on Lewis Ross. Lewis Ross was the brother of Chief John Ross of the Cherokees who quietly wielded power behind the scenes, but is often little more than a footnote in history.  

About the instructor: 

Rachel Whitaker grew up in Highfill, Arkansas, and attended school in nearby Gentry until she began homeschool in the seventh grade. She attended college at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Her educational background is in history and libraries. Rachel’s work in the history field has included internships at George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond, Missouri, and the Hunter’s Home in Park Hill, Oklahoma. She also spent time among the Kiowa tribe in southwestern Oklahoma, working on a project to collect animal tales. Rachel is currently a history instructor at Connors State College in Muskogee, Oklahoma and student at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
