Choctaw students invited to Ireland

This made me cry so I’m gonna make you cry.

During the Great Hunger, the Choctaw people sent the Irish the modern equivalent of thousands of dollars in famine relief only 16 years after surviving the Trail of Tears.

Today, the taoiseach of Ireland, Leo Varadkar, visited the Choctaw Nation to announce scholarships for Choctaw students to study in Ireland.
