Many locations at Haskell Indian Nations University, an 1800s institution built to help Native Americans assimilate with the mainstream population, are rumored to be haunted. At the Bell Tower, students report a mysterious sealed-off wall in the basement and a feeling of being watched from above as they pass by. At Hiawatha Hall, the oldest building on the campus, a ghost opens and closes doors, even those propped open with a doorstop. At Haskell Auditorium, an apparition sits in the auditorium seats during shows, and a little girl has been heard crying backstage. In Pocahontas Hall’s basement, the ghost of a girl who once hanged herself here may appear hanging from the ceiling. And just south of Taminend Hall, ghostly crying is heard at a small cemetery containing the remains of around 70 children who died in a smallpox epidemic.
