About Ostenaco, a leader of Cherokee warriors:
During the French and Indian War, Ostenaco was a leader of Cherokee warriors who allied with Virginia military leaders against northern tribes fighting with the French. His leadership provided a vital alliance for the British colonial settlements in much of present West Virginia. Ostenaco’s influence contributed significantly to the expansion of English-speaking people into Western Virginia. Start time is 7:00 p.m. Program lasts about one hour. Family-friendly. Questions and conversation. Open to the public at no cost.
Ostenaco presentation is a History Alive! program made possible by the West Virginia Humanities Council and West Virginia State Park system. Your evening host is Jacob Jackson, Park Naturalist.
