Shoot, I keep waiting for someone with more brain cells operating than I
have to post the story of the Choctaws and the Potato Famine. Now it occurs
to me that the discussion must have been on another list.

What I remember is that the reason the Choctaws were so affected by the
Great Famine was that they had a great deal of Irish blood. They were
sending relief to their cousins.
