Choctaws In The Mansion House



They’re removing the spirit of Royston Brady

Minutes ago .

A ceremony hosted, by Lord Mayor Naoise Ó Muirí, recalling the help the Choctaw nation gave to the Irish in 1847.

From The Irish American Newsletter:

Moved by news of the starvation in Ireland, a group of Choctaws gathered in Scullyville, Oklahoma to raise a relief fund. Despite their meager resources, they collected $170 and forwarded it to a U.S. famine relief organization. It was both the most unlikely and the most generous contribution to the effort to relieve Ireland’s suffering.

They also met the long fella.
