Because of the success of the “Tales of the Indian Raids” bus tour to Oberlin during the annual Buffalo Commons Storytelling Festival, McCook Community College will provide a second bus for the tour.
Those interested should contact the college immediately before the second bus is filled.
The bus will travel to the Last Indian Raid Museum in Oberlin and the Sappa and Beaver Creek sites where the pioneers were raided and killed during the Cheyenne Exodus.
Knowledgeable tour guides will share information about the desperate 1878 event.
The bus departs from MCC’s McMillen Hall at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 8, and will return at 3 p.m. Cost is $25, which includes the bus ride, guided tour, museum tour, and lunch in Oberlin.
Those who want to learn more about the code of honor of the American Cowboy can join Cowboy Poet Waddie Mitchell as he explores the “Cowboy Way” in “Cowboy Philosophy 101.”
The workshop will take place from 3-5 p.m. on Friday, June 8, at McMillen Hall. The cost is $19.
For those who are interested in both Cowboys and Indians, MCC is offering a combination package that includes both the “Tales of the Indian Raids” tour and “Cowboy Philosophy 101” workshop for only $30.
