Choctaw Ireland Scholarship
In 1847, during the height of the Potato Famine in Ireland, the Choctaw Nation donated $170 to the people of Cork, despite having recently endured the trauma of the Trail of Tears. This huge act of kindness has never been forgotten by the Irish and is commemorated in the Kindred Spirit monument in Midleton, Cork, Ireland.
