J.W.

Local historic figures return for one night only

Kaye Bryant is taking her roll in this year’s Spirits of Oxford seriously.

Playing the Chickasaw Princess Hoka who sold the land that is now Oxford to settlers, Bryant is doing more than just donning a black braided wig.

“I learned how to speak a little bit of the language,” she said Thursday. “It was a challenge coming up with an accent to sound somewhat authentic but I’ve loved doing it.”

Bryant is one of several people who perform in this year’s Spirits of Oxford being held at 6 and 8 p.m. Oct. 22 at St. Peter’s Cemetery. (October 15, 2010, Page 1B)
