Hello! I am Jonita Mullins, a writer, speaker, historian, preservationist and tour guide.
Thanks to all who attended the History Matters event with best-selling author Steve Berry on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa. He generously helped us raise funds for the Alice Robertson Home restoration project. Learn more at savinghistorichouses.com.
I grew up in small town Oklahoma and appreciate the great Oklahoma values and heritage I learned from my wonderful parents. Steeped in a strong sense of time and place, I recognize the importance of knowing your past in order to create your future. It is my desire to preserve our history and heritage for our children and to share it with you and your family.
Through writing, speaking, art and historical tours, I offer you this great Oklahoma heritage. I conduct neighborhood walking tours in the historic districts of Muskogee to encourage preservation. I developed the Bass Reeves Legacy Tour to tell a notable part of the multi-cultural story of Indian Territory. My work draws upon and is refined by a celebration of our colorful history. For how can we know who we are without our past?
I am proud to be an Okie. Oklahoma has a unique history and heritage and great natural beauty that has been described as "the most American" of all the states. Here you can find buffalo, elk and deer roaming freely on the open range or among the silent woods. It is a place where scenic rivers drift and tumble through the mists of ancient hills while bald eagles soar overhead.
At Okie Heritage, I try to celebrate my home state's rich diversity, natural beauty, colorful Western history, Southern hospitality and down-to-earth family values. From my historic home in Muskogee, the "capital of Indian Territory," and the center of "Okie Nation," I welcome visitors to come share all that is great about this state.
